caramelized onion and brie quesadilla

I love to eat a slice (or two) of Brie with a good piece of crusty bread but then I find I usually have way more leftover than I need. This recipe pairs creamy Brie with softened caramelized onions and makes for a perfect match when melted together in a quesadilla. It’s great served as is, or topped with a dollop of prepared peach salsa.

1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper
2-3 slices brie cheese
1 flour tortilla, cut in half
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1. In a medium sauté pan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions cook until caramelized, stirringly occasionally, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium heat. Brush outsides of tortilla with oil. Flip over tortilla halves and place cheese on inside of one half of tortilla, followed by onions. Gently press halves together to make a sandwich. Grill for 4-5 minutes, turn and grill for another 4-5 minutes, until cheese is melted and tortilla is lightly charred on both sides. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

Serves 1.
