Smoked Gouda and Drunk Onion Quesadillas

March9

 

These quesadillas were another huge hit at every party we catered. They are so easy and so, so, so good. People would ask, “how do you get the onions to taste so sweet yet savory.” Our answer? Get ‘em good and drunk! Add half a bottle of wine and boil the hell out of ‘em.

Fabulous for a tapas dinner party, an appetizer or a weekend lunch.

I’ve got bills to pay and laundry to fold so I’ve gotta run – but! Make these. You will love them.

Hubby’s note: Tests show that if you give your wife a half bottle of wine and soak her in the tub and/or a jacuzzi, you will acheive the same results. Savory and sweet. I’m just sayin’.

Ingredients
8 flour tortillas
1 onion, sliced into rings and then cut in half
1/2 pound gouda, grated
1/2 stick butter, melted
Seasoned salt (like Lawry’s)
1/2 bottle of red wine (the rest is for you…you deserve it!)

Directions
Add wine and onions to a small pot and cook at medium flame until all of the wine has been reduced and absorbed by the onions. Heat oven to 350. Place two tortillas on a baking sheet (if you have two baking sheets, you can knock these out at once). Place a layer of gouda on the tortilla followed by a generous helping of drunk onions. A little more gouda on top and then place another tortilla on top. Brush with butter and sprinkle with seasoned salt. Place in oven for 3 minutes, then using a spatula, flip the quesadillas over. Bake for an additional 3 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Then slice and serve!

  • Screw Cancer
    Cancer. Shit. After recovering for over two weeks from a Hysterectomy, the last thing I expected my doctor to call me with was cancer. Total shock. Dry mouth. Mind Racing. My health history isn’t exactly stellar. I had stage 4 follicular Thyroid Cancer at age 4 with a recurrence at age 24. So when it […]
  • Butternut Squash Tart with Fried Sage
    I’m on house arrest. Not by choice.  And not by legal means of enforcement.  But nonetheless, I am home-bound.  For a little while, anyway. Uncomfortable Health Issues are something that people seem to steer clear of in conversation.  They’re easier for all to avoid.  Especially if you are a woman and going through something with your […]

    My friend Laura opened this adorable studio to host craft workshops. These aren’t your run of the mill Joann’s fabrics classes, kids. These are full fledged super hip workshops; macrame, wood working, dream catchers, chalk art, floral arranging. I’ve had the pleasure of providing some small bites for a few of her workshops and these […]

    When the hubby and I first started dating, we were broke. I had just come home from a three month backpacking trip to Europe where I spent my life savings (as much of a life savings as one has at 21) and was barely waiting tables at the infamous Miyagi’s in Hollywood. My car had […]
