How to make it

  • Halve and skin good size onion, then slice thin strips.
  • Place sliced onions in skillet with a drizzle of olive oil and a little of butter, sprinkle with salt. This will be the most time consuming part of the entire dish.
  • You will want to cook the onions slowly on a medium-low heat to allow the natural sugars to come out from the onions, moving them around in the pan every so often - you want to allow them to caramelize and get gently browned and 'soggy' so to speak. Once cooked, take out of skillet and set aside.
  • While onions are cooking, start to assemble your quesadillas.
  • ***Note You can either keep them in a round shape then fold over to have a half circle, or pile two together like a sandwich and cook them as a circle - either way - you can stuff more in them if they are compiled as a circle.
  • Keep in mind to put cheeses on the outside layers, so that the cheeses melt easier.
  • For example, I added the ingredients in this order: crumbled goat cheese, then some chicken, cooked onions, then some salsa, added a little salt and pepper, then some strips of the fresh mozzarella then folded the quesadilla over to create a half circle.
  • **To Cook them in same skillet: heat back skillet, add a little butter, and place quesadilla in - let brown on one side, then with spatula, carefully flip over and allow to cook on the other side. This took maybe 7 minutes total time, if that.
  • **To bake in oven: Placed on parchment paper lined cookie sheet, place quesadilla in preheated oven at 375 and let bake for 15-20 minutes until cheese has melted.
  • **To Grill: I would suggest using the 'circled' method of creating your quesadillas, then place them on the upper shelf of your grill. Turn over after 4 minutes - maybe less and allow to cook on the other side.
  • Serve up at once with a dollop of sour cream if you wish or added salsa. If making them for appetizers, slice them up with a pizza cutter for that 'easy picker-upper with one hand way' of eating them!

    Love these!! I always fix quesedillas on the foreman grill! Quick and easy, cook both sides and once. Use a whole tortilla top and bottom, or put filling over half and fold the top over for a smaller one. Can't wait to try!
