Smokey Gouda, Prosciutto, & Caramelized Onion Quesadillas I made these as an appetizer for my Sister Harmony’s bridal shower, before heading off to Mexico for her wedding. They were definitely a hit at the party and have an exquisite taste you won’t soon forget. – Cedar Hwang
Ingredients 2 tbsp of butter 1 thinly sliced onion 1 tbsp brown sugar 1 tsp white wine vinegar 1 ½ cups grated smoked gouda 4 ten-inch flour tortillas 2 ounces sliced prosciutto, chopped. 2 tbsp melted butter
Preparation Melt the butter in a pan on medium heat and add the onion, brown sugar and vinegar. Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring frequently until the onion is browned. Remove and let cool. Preheat the oven to 350 F. On each half of the tortillas sprinkle gouda, prosciutto, and the caramelized onions. Season with pepper and put the other half of tortilla on top. In a pan melt the remaining butter and cook the quesadillas over medium high heat until the tortillas begin to brown (this will give a nice crunch to the shell). Transfer them onto a baking sheet and place in the oven until the cheese melts (about 5 minutes). Slice into triangles, serve, and let your taste buds join the party! *Feel free to use arugula or cilantro for an added green. Serve with sour cream, guacamole, or salsa.
