Manchego Cheese Quesadilla with Pepper Jam

Last Year's Post: Labneh
Two Years Ago:  Classic Potato Gratin

This is my version of a no-recipe dinner.  I was on the way home last night with no idea of what to have for dinner except I knew The Lawyer wanted to grill something.  When I stopped at the store nothing in the meat case looked appealing so I grabbed some flour tortillas, a wedge of Manchego cheese, some pepper preserves and a container of micro-greens.  Done.

This is so easy I'm not even going to pretend it's a recipe - just grate your favorite cheese (fontina, manchego or goat cheese would work particularly well with the pepper jam), put it on some flour tortillas, top with another tortilla, brush both sides with a little olive oil and grill outdoors or on a grill pan or in a skillet until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are golden on both sides.  Serve with the pepper jam (which you can find in almost any grocery store with the other jams) or onion jam if you can find it, and any kind of small greens.  Dinner is served in about 15 minutes.

It's basically an interesting twist on a grilled cheese sandwich, and it makes the perfect light dinner for one of those nights when you've had one of those days.

No recipe (see above)
