I LOVE a good quesadilla, and they are really super easy to put together. It’s generally some cheese slapped between two tortillas and there ya go! Well, I wanted to up my quesadilla game and add some sweet and savory flavors. Speaking of games, this is a great appetizer for game day that doesn’t make you feel like you’re over indulging! I have a super fun quesadilla maker which I used for this recipe, but if you don’t have one, do not fear! You can still use a regular skillet and just place a heat safe heavy plate or smaller skillet on top to squish it down a bit.

FUN FACT: Breakfast sausage was invented by American farmers when they decided they didn’t want to waste any meat, so they created the breakfast sausage with it.

Instructions
  1. Chop onions, peel and thinly slice pears. Add butter to skillet and sauté onions and pears together until onions are translucent and have slight browning.
  2. Cook sausage patties according to package directions.
  3. Warm up quesadilla maker or skillet if that is what you are using.
  4. Spray with nonstick spray. Place your first tortilla on and load with two of the sausage patties, broken into pieces. Next add pears and onion mixture, gruyere cheese and ripped up pieces of fresh sage.
  5. Place second tortilla on top and close lid of tortilla maker or if cooking in a skillet, place heavy heat safe plate or smaller skillet on top. It will only take about 5-7 minutes in the tortilla maker and cooks on both sides. In a skillet, cook for 5-7 minutes on first side then carefully flip for another 5 minutes on other side.
  6. Once cooked, slice into 6 slices per quesadilla. Be careful, it’s going to be hot inside!
