From Southern Living Magazine, November 2006. This is for 2 servings but can easily be changed to make more!
- Sprinkle one side of tortilla with Havarti cheese.
- Top with pecans.
- Fold tortilla over filling.
- Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray and cook quesadilla over medium high heat for 2 minutes each side or until cheese melts.
- Slice into wedges and serve with pear preserves.
I love this recipe - for those who can't find pear preserves - just buy a can of canned pears - mash and cook down with a bit of sugar until thick like a preserve or compote - I've made this a dozen times or more and it always works like a charm - For parties, when I want to be able to pass the quesadilla as an appetizer - I put the pecans, harvarti and pear mixture all in the tortilla before toasting - cool a minute then cut into serving pieces - for a cheaper version use queso cheese instead of havarti - melts nicely and is pretty good
So easy and so gourmet tasting; a very elegant appetizer. Like some of the other reviewers, I used apricot preserves because I could not find pear preserves.
Love Love Love this recipe. I have served it a number of times and it always gets amazing reviews. While I agree the pear preserves are pricey, this recipe totally rocks and I would recommend trying them. Thanks so much for posting.
