Two Minute Quesadillas

September 22nd, 2017
food  [html]
Lily has recently gotten excited about having quesadillas all the time, so I've been thinking about how to make them better. There are normally two ways: the slow tasty way, via stove, grill or oven, and the fast so-so way, via microwave. But combining them gets you the best of both!

Here's what I've been doing:

  1. Turn the heat to high under the skillet, add some oil
  2. Put a tortilla on a microwave-safe plate, put cheese etc on it
  3. Microwave for ~45s to melt cheese
  4. Fold over, put in hot skillet for ~20s on each side

The speed of the microwave, but with the browned Maillard taste of real cooking.

(When making them for Lily this is usually followed by a short time in the freezer to get it down to toddler mouth temperatures.)

I really like One Night Ultimate Werewolf (ONUW), and recommend trying it out. The Daybreak expansion is also good (but I’d skip the later games in the series). App For those who’ve played a lot and wish the night took 20 seconds rather than a few minutes…
