Josh loves quesadillas. I know he likes the taste, but he also likes saying the word. One of his favorite movies is Napoleon Dynamite and he loves quoting the quesadilla line. If you have seen the movie, you know what I am talking about. The other night he requested quesadillas for dinner, I decided to mix things up and make pear, brie, and honey quesadillas.
This recipe was inspired by our grilled pear, brie, and honey crostini , that was featured in Salt Lake Magazine. It is one of our favorite appetizers. The flavors are so good together. I had a feeling the same ingredients would taste amazing in a quesadilla, and I was right. The melted buttery brie is topped with pear and red onion slices, a drizzle of honey, and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary. Everything is sandwiched between two flour tortillas. I cut the quesadilla into wedges and the brie and honey oozed out of the side. We got a little sticky, but it was worth it.
Pear, brie, and honey quesadillas make a great appetizer or light meal. They are a little more sophisticated than the typical quesadilla, but still extremely simple to make.

Congrats on the features! I’ve never had the fruit and cheese quesadillas and I’ve never made it all the way through Napoleon Dynamite, maybe I’ve been living under a rock! Must try this soon!
Congratulations! That looks like one mighty sweet and sophisticated quesadilla.
Your recipes are great!
What a great flavour combination for quesadilllas!
I just stumbled upon your blog, and this quesadilla looks amazing! Pears and brie both being high on my favorite ingredients list, these cannot be anything but good. Adding rosemary into the mix is a really good idea!
Fantastic mixture of flavors, Maria! The rosemary is a really nice touch.
I love a sweet take on a savory dish. Pears and honey and brie… you can’t go wrong with this combo. Can’t wait to try.
I could totally eat cheese and bread in any form, especially quesadillas. They’re so easy to make and they really fill me up. Your recipe looks delicious. I usually make these Quick Chicken Quesadillas. I love them!
This has been on my “to-make” list and I finally made it last night. That…was…AWESOME! The combination of flavors was unique and fantastic. I even loved that I was able to get all the ingredients from my local food co-op. Knowing it was made from local/organic ingredients made it even that much better. Kudos!
Kristen-don’t you love these flavors together? Glad the quesadilla was a hit!
I love to put sliced bosc pear in my sandwich along with goat cheese and drizzle with honey mustard. Adding rosemary, it must give a unique flavor…
i think i just died and went to grown-up quesadilla heaven…i have NEVER tried this combo but it sounds divine!
We just LOVED these! we love brie on anything. Thanks for posting this!!
These quesadillas look like a fancy version of the usual, and great flavor combo!
We absolutely love sweet, fresh pears, fragrant rosemary and the melty, creamy goodness that is brie. Would never have thought of this combination but can’t wait to try!
