Lite Summer Meals.

Grilled Brie Cheese and Grape Quesadillas!

Summer is finally here!  Here is a quick and easy meal for you to enjoy on those hot summer nights!

This would be perfect to serve on those long summer nights while you sit outside with a glass of wine.

First gather your supplies.  It couldn't be easier.  All you need is a package of soft tortillas (any kind or size that you like) a bunch of grapes (again any kind you like, I always seem to like the green grapes the best) and of course some soft brie cheese.  Brie cheese can be expensive, but you really only need a little bit for each.

Next put some oil or non-stick spray in your frying pan and threw one tortilla in the pan.  Then slice up some of the brie and place on the hot tortilla.  While that is getting hot, you will cut in half approximately 10 grapes for each tortilla that you will be making.  Once you have your grapes cut and the cheese has started to melt a little you can add your grapes.  I usually only put the grapes on one side so that its easier to fold the tortilla.


You can now fold your tortilla and give it a gentle 'smush'.  To me the key to good grilled food is all in the 'smush'.  You want to press down firmly so that everything melts together and the tortilla becomes nice and flat, but don't press down to hard or all your grapes will escape from inside.

Once you have both sides nice and golden brown you can take the quesadilla out of the pan and start on your next one.  I like to let them cool a little before you try to cut them or again the cheese and grapes might try to escape out the sides.

That's it.  These are so simple and good.  I warn you, these are so addictive.  I like them so much the way they are that I never came up with a dipping sauce for them.  If any of you guys have any suggestions for a good dipping sauce or tips to make these even better, I would love to hear your comments!

Thanks so much and Enjoy!!!
