Ruben Quesadilla

Since I moved, I have wanted to ride my bike to work.  Today I did it.  I feel a sense of accomplishment.

It was a beautiful day for a bike ride.  It was sunny and not too hot.

The only problem is that my neck got sunburned.  I suffer!

Ruben sandwiches could be my favorite sandwich.  I like the spicy sauerkraut and peppery corned beef.

I made ruben quesadillas and a ruben brussels sprout salad, which I have yet to post.  Both were delectable.   

The ingredients for the quesadilla are tortillas, corned beef, sauerkraut, swiss cheese, and thousand island dressing.  For each quesadilla I used two slices of swiss cheese, one slice of corned beef, about and eighth of a cup of sauerkraut, and two tablespoons of dressing.  I used the dressing as a dipping sauce.

I put one slice of cheese on half of a tortilla.  I added the corned beef on top of the cheese.

I removed as much of the liquid from the sauerkraut before layering it on top of the corned beef.  I then added the remaining slice of cheese.

I grilled each side of the quesadilla until the tortilla was golden brown and the cheese was melted.

I served the quesadilla with some thousand island dressing.

I enjoy the sharp flavors of a ruben, and it translated well into a quesadilla.

 The tortilla was crispy and golden, the cheese creamy and smooth, and the meat savory and moist.  It was delectable!
