Pear, Brie, and Honey Quesadilla

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.

We have some exciting new to share! It’s been a busy week for Two Peas and Their Pod. We were featured on Saveur and CNN’s Eatocracy this week. We are are still pinching ourselves. We are extremely grateful and humbled to be in the spotlight. Thank you for all of your support. We have the best readers and appreciate your continued support with our food blog.

  9. Oh yum. Brie is one of my favorites and this quesadilla sounds amazing. I’m adding this to my recipe box. I like to do my quesidillas on two tortillas. I lay out all the ingredients on them open and then when the cheese melts I fold them over. I just like the “closed” sides.

  22. 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.

  23. 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!

  24. 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…

  25. i think i just died and went to grown-up quesadilla heaven…i have NEVER tried this combo but it sounds divine!

  26. 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!
