Soooo Yummy!




Just wanted to share this fun new recipe for the most delicious meal ever. I didn't take a picture but I'm sure y'all can visualize. I saw this on Semi Homemade (I love Sandra Lee and her coordinated curtains and outfit and mixing bowls and table-scapes. And of course "cocktail time!") and kicked it up a little notch by adding onions. I promise you will agree that this is crazy good!

Brie Quesadillas

Brie (I used low fat and couldn't taste the difference in this recipe)
Cream cheese
Tortillas
Granny Smith Apple
Vidalia onion

Slice onion and caramelize in a little EVOO. Buford Betty taught me that if you nuke it in the microwave for a few minutes first, it cuts the cooking time waaaay down. Set aside.

Slice brie into thin slices. SL taught me to use a spritz of cooking spray on the knife to prevent the cheese from clumping up. Slice apple into thin slices.

Coat both sides of tortillas with a thin layer of cream cheese. Next add slices of brie. Then apple. Then some of the onions. Top with second tortilla. Cook in a pan using a spritz of cooking oil spray until cheese is all melty good. Repeat as needed.

Sauce

Jar of strawberry preserves
3 tablespoons of apple sauce
Dash of cinnamon

Mix together and heat for a minute or two in the microwave. Beware- this makes a LOT of sauce. So unless you are making a dozen of these quesadillas as appetizers, you should cut this recipe in half. Otherwise you will end up like me and have a bowl of sauce sitting in your fridge and no idea what to do with it.

I served this along with a huge salad as my dinner but it would be fabu as an appetizer or small bite.

In regards to your question about whether or not I use a website to clue me in to local sales...I have been doing the $1 trial for www.grocerygame.com. It is pretty good:)
