Who doesn’t love a good cheesy delight?
Famed singer-songwriter and husband extraordinaire to model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen, John Legend is not shy of going to the kitchen himself. His twist on the classic quesadilla includes bacon, egg, avocado and, of course, cheese.
Teigen first shared the recipe on her Instagram, posting a story of Legend making the quesadillas for their family. After success on the social platform, Teigen brought Legend in to film his process for her cooking website, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen.

Legend starts by frying the bacon. It's nice to see that he's human, setting off the fire alarm as the bacon smokes out the entire kitchen. Putting out the alarm, he proceeds to make his avocado spread – which Teigen explicitly tells him is not guacamole.
Scramble some eggs, melt some cheese, and you've got yourself an EGOT-worthy crispy quesadilla with avocado spread! Legend specifically uses two tortillas to create a sandwich-like quesadilla, allowing each serving to be cut into more pieces – perfect for sharing. The final touch is plating, as "presentation is everything," Legend says.
