I realize I may have lost some of you with the title of this post. Sorry for that. A few days ago I reconnected with a childhood friend on Facebook. We were reminiscing about one of her mother's signature dishes, peanut butter pizza. This got me thinking of the peanut butter/cheese combination, and thus, these quesadillas were born. These were stick-to-your-ribs yummy in a "that's interesting" yummy sort of way. I'm sending this over to Nick, the Peanut Butter Boy, for his Great Peanut Butter Exhibition. If you're brave enough to try these, let me know what you think!
Peanut Butter Quesadillas by Joie de vivre
2 Flour tortillas
1 Tbls. peanut butter
1/4 cup shredded mozzerella cheese
1. Spread the peanut butter on one of the tortillas. Lay the tortilla on a griddle. Place the griddle over low heat. Sprinkle the mozzerella cheese on top of the peanut butter and top with the other tortilla.
2. Occasionally check the bottom of the tortilla by lifting carefully with a spatula. When it is beginning to brown, flip the quesadilla over to the other side. Cook until lightly browned on both sides and cheese is melted.
3. Cut into 4-8 pieces and serve with a tall glass of cold milk.
