Pear and Brie Quesadillas

Pear and Brie Quesadillas: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 8
Cook Time: 8 min.
A small amount of flavorful Brie cheese goes a long way in these unusual and elegant Mexican inspired appetizers.

Ingredients

  • 4 flour tortillas, 10-inches (25cm) in diameter
  • 2 medium Bartlett pears, at the peak of ripeness
  • 4 oz Brie cheese*
  • 1/4 cup or more fresh salsa, red or green salsa can be used

Directions

  • Place the 4 tortillas on a flat working surface.
  • Slice and core the pears into thin pieces (about 1/4-inch (0.5cm) thick).
  • Slice Brie into 12 or more very thin slices.
  • To assemble quesadillas, place pear slices and cheese on each tortilla, leaving one side of the tortilla empty for folding over. Fold the tortilla to form a semi-circle, with the pear and cheese on the inside.
  • Heat a nonstick skillet. Place a folded tortilla in the pan and heat just until the cheese starts to melt. Gently turn the quesadilla over and continue heating until the tortilla is lightly browned.
  • Remove to a platter and repeat with each of the 4 tortillas.
  • Slice each quesadilla in half and drizzle about 1 Tbsp (15g) of salsa over the top. Serve with napkins or a plate and fork, as it can get quite messy!

* Allergy notes: The egg protein lysozyme is an unlabeled additive in some cheeses. People allergic to eggs should eliminate any cheese in this recipe.
