Prosciutto de Parma Quesadilla Recipe
Brunch and Breakfast
Yields: 2 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 5 min
Flour Tortillas or wraps
1/4 cup grated Smoked Jack Cheese
1/4 cup grated Gruyere cheese
2 slices Prosciutto de Parma*
* An Italian salt-cured and transparent thinly-sliced ham.
Distribute the grated cheeses over the top of one (1) flour tortilla.
Place the Prosciutto slices on top of the cheeses. Place the second flour
tortilla shell on top.
Coat a non-stick frying pan with non-stick spray or lightly brush with olive oil. Place on the stove over medium-high
heat and brown one side of the quesadilla; then flip and brown the other side until the cheeses are bubbling and tortilla is golden.
Remove from pan and let sit approximately 1 minute for cheese to set up a little. Cut with a large, sharp knife into four wedges.
Place on individual serving plates and serve.
