Hawaiian Quesadillas


Butter really does make everything better . . . the tasty crisp exterior of these quesadillas is proof of that. And on the inside? The impeccable combination of ham and pineapple. Melt it all together with some mozzarella cheese and you’ve got yourself somethin’ mighty delicious. This recipe is easy and quick and could be an appetizer or a meal. Your choice. That’s right. You’re the person in charge. The boss. The head honcho. The big cheese! . . . er, the big mozzarella cheese. That is what I shall call myself from now on when I’m feeling all in charge in the kitchen: The Big Mozzarella Cheese. Ha!


For each quesadilla:

2 10-inch flour tortillas

2 T butter

4 slices deli ham

1/4 c fresh pineapple, sliced thin

1 1/2 c mozzarella cheese, grated


Heat 1 tablespoon butter in skillet over medium low heat. When butter is melted and sizzling, place tortilla in skillet. Layer 3/4 cup cheese, ham slices, pineapple slices, and 3/4 cup cheese, in that order, on tortilla. Top with other tortilla. Spread remaining tablespoon of butter on top tortilla. Cook for approximately 8 minutes or until golden brown. Flip quesadilla with spatula and cook another 4 minutes or until golden brown. Slice into wedges and serve immediately.
