My mom makes wonderful lunches for us every time we visit and she has made this wonderful quesadillas a couple of times. The combination of Mango, Brie and Onion is so appetizing! I was so happy to see that Brie cheese was buy one get one free at our local store a couple weeks back and I just couldn’t pass it up. Ever since having this quesadilla at my mom’s for the first time, I am always on the look-out for a good deal on the Brie cheese. I swing by the cheese cooler everytime I shop to see if there are any good deals on it.
Mango, Brie, and Caramelized Onion Quesadilla
- 1 small onion, it takes about an hour to caramelize, so plan ahead
- 1/2 mango, diced
- brie cheese, sliced-mine came in a log that was about 1″ in diameter, I used about 1+1/2″ of it
- 2 tortillas
- Olive oil
Caramelize the onions in a pan with 1/2 T. butter and 1/2 T. olive oil over low heat until they are golden and still soft. When this is complete, assemble the quesadilla. Place all ingredients between 2 quesadillas to within 1″ of the edge. Cook on a quesadilla maker or griddle sprayed with nonstick cooking spray until warm. Cut into wedges. Serve.
Last friday, I made these right before leaving for a friends house and they travelled so well. After cutting them into wedges, I piled them onto a sheet of aluminum foil, wrapped them up and took them in my hot casserole carrier. They were still warm when I got there, so I placed them in her warm oven until we were ready to eat. Everyone enjoyed them with a glass of wine!
