  • 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.)
