Enjoying some gouda and fig together isn’t necessarily something unusual. Chances are you or someone you know has enjoyed them before. But, have they ever tried these two ingredients mixed within a tortilla? If it sounds like something you might want to try, keep reading below to find out how to prepare it in quesadilla form.
- Three and a half ounces of aged and shredded gouda
- A tablespoon of softened butter
- Five ounces of 1/4-inch wedge-sliced figs
- Four tortillas
Begin by pre-heating a sheet pan in a broiler and moving your oven rack to the highest position. Use the butter to spread and divide it on each tortilla, making sure to only use one side. Follow by sprinkling a bit of cheese near the top, arranging about half of the figs on top of that, and then sprinkling additional cheese. Once you’ve noticed the tortilla is beginning to crisp, move it over to the broiler sheet pan and allow the figs to caramelize.
As the first quesadilla is being prepared in the broiler, repeat the aforementioned steps for the second tortilla while it’s in the pan prior to moving it over to the boiler. Once the pan has been emptied, direct your attention back to the first tortilla and top it off with another tortilla, making sure the side you buttered is facing up. Flip it over into the pan so that the second tortilla you just placed on top is now facing down and fry until it’s crispy.
Repeat the process for the other tortillas and you’re ready to enjoy a pair of tasty quesadillas!
