Meatless Meal

I'm back after our anniversary celebrations (thank you for all the sweet comments) with a meatless recipe. Don't be too quick to judge. This one is good!
I'm known for trying to sneak meatless recipes passed Hubs (a meat lover) and only half have actually pasted. However, this one passed and we're now having it for the second time this week! So I figured it was worth passing along. It's a Grilled Portobello Quesadilla! The Portobelllo mushroom has a meaty flavor and is also filling so you or the man in your life won't walk away feeling hungry. Here it is...

4 Portobello mushrooms
1 tbls oil
8 8inch tortilla
red onion
2 cups of your choice of cheese

Heat the oil over medium in pan. Brush mushrooms with oil and season with salt/pepper. Grill mushrooms and onions, covered (since we don't have a grill this works great stove-top) 8-10 mins each side. Thinly slice. Lightly brush 1 side of tortilla with oil and form sandwich with all the ingredients, covering with other tortilla. Grill covered, until cheese is melted and tortilla is crispy, 1-3 mins per side.

Corn salsa:
can of corn
red onion
Mix all together and place on top of quesadilla! (if you want to get fancy then saute the corn)


  1. This sounds great!!I think we will give this a try!

  2. It was really, really good.

  3. There's nothing better than [anything] slathered in butter and cooked in a frying pan!!!

  4. Haha Such as gourmet grilled cheeses?!

  5. How much cheese is too much cheese?

  6. A dump truck. Until then keep it coming
