How to make it

  • Heat frying pan over medium heat.
  • Lightly butter one side of one tortilla and place in pan - buttered side down.
  • Quickly arrange half the Gruyere slices and basil on top of the tortilla.
  • Optional: Add half the chopped chicken if you want. Makes this more of a meal than a snack. I usually use leftover rotisserie chicken from the previous night's meal.
  • Lightly butter one side of a second tortilla and place on top to make a sandwich - buttered side up.
  • When the bottom tortilla is looking golden and crispy (should be close by the time you add the tortilla on top), use a spatula to flip the whole thing over.
  • Cook a few minutes until the new bottom tortilla is also golden and crispy.
  • Slide the whole thing onto a chopping board or plate and let it rest while you make the second one.
  • Cut into wedges (I use a pizza cutter) and serve immediately.
  • Refrigerate leftovers and enjoy for lunch! I like to eat the leftovers cold, but I suppose you could just reheat in a microwave.

    So yummy! I LOVE all the ingredients so I knew we would love these! I am NOT good at flipping a quesadilla so for our sake (and my pictures) I did my usual handicap way ;) I laid the tortilla on the counter put filling on one half and folded over then I browned on both sides in the butter. Delicious! Some spinach would be a great addition in this too ;) Thanks Linda!

    Filling and tasty. Made cornflour tortillas for this one. And tried out some smoked gruyere.

    I've had this bookmarked since it was posted and finally got around to it tonight. I only made on for my dinner and ate it all (I'm stuffed) but am now wishing I had made another as I think these would be great cold. Made it exactly as written and had whole wheat flour tortillas on hand. Added my pictures. Quick and easy - I loved it!
