Peach, Goat Cheese, and Caramelized Onion Quesadilla

Last weekend, Hubby and I went blueberry picking. We also picked some peaches the same day. When we were picking the peaches they were all very hard but smelled delicious. We brought them home and put them on the counter wondering when they would ripen. Then, BAM! we had a bunch of ripe peaches two days later. (Yes, I did just channel my inner Emeril right there).

With all these peaches in the house, I was on the hunt for some great peach recipes. I saw this one pop up in Branny Boils Over and made it about an hour later for lunch.

I loved the combination of flavors in this quesadilla. Hubby gave a weird look when I told him what I had eaten for lunch, so I’m planning to make these again for lunch on Saturday so he can experience the awesomeness.

I did burn my caramelized onions a bit, so try not to do that when you make yours! Even with the slightly burnt onions, this quesadilla was great. The creaminess from the goat cheese and the sweetness from the peaches go perfectly together.

Peach, Goat Cheese, and Caramelized Onion Quesadilla

Yield: 2

Ingredients:

2 8″ whole wheat tortilla
1 peach, thinly sliced
1 large onion
1 oz goat cheese

Directions:

Slice onions very thinly. Place in a large stainless steel skillet sprayed with olive oil. Turn heat to medium and cover onions, cooking for about 10 minutes. Remove lid and cook uncovered, 25-35 more minutes until onions are deep golden. Place onions in a bowl to cool.

Wipe out the skillet in which you cooked the onions and coat with cooking spray.

Place tortilla in pan and put the heat on medium. Arrange a quarter of the cheese on one side of the tortilla. Top with 1/2 of a sliced peach. Add another layer of cheese and 1/2 of the caramelized onions. Immediately fold the other half of the tortilla over and cook 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook 3-4 minutes on the opposite side. Let cool slightly before cutting and serving.

    I love this recipe – and I know what you mean about the supermarket sprinkles. I have a huge tub of heart shaped ones leftover from a purchase last year and I think there’s enough to last me for the next twenty years of Valentine’s day treats.
