2 Flour Tortillas
2-3 Nectarines, pitted and sliced into thin wedges
1 Tbsp. Swerve brown sugar substitute
2 Tsp. Butter
4 Thin Slices of brie cheese
2 Tbsp. Honey
Pinch of Calabrian chili flakes
Swerve Confectioner’s Sugar (optional for dusting at end)
1) Place the butter and nectarines in a non-stick skillet over a medium-high heat. Add the sugar and gently stir into the nectarine and butter mix. Toss occasionally until the sugar melts, the fruit starts to soften and it smells amazing! (a couple of minutes)
2) Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray and add a tortilla. Place half the fruit mixture on one half of each tortilla. Top with two brie cheese slices. Fold over the empty half of the tortilla and press down creating a half moon “sandwich”. Heat until golden brown on that side (about 2 minutes). Gently flip over and cook until the second side is golden brown. (another 2 minutes)
3) Meanwhile, heat the honey and chili flakes in a small dish in the microwave for 10 seconds. Stir.
4) Place a quesadilla on a plate and drizzle the hot honey over it. Shake a dusting of confectioner’s sugar on top and enjoy!
NOTES: This has to make it to your brunch, lunch or dessert table! It is absolutely amazing! It is warm and the cheese gets all ooey-gooey. The naturally sweet nectarines get a real deep sweetness from the brown sugar and butter and the powdered sugar just makes the dish pop.
A couple of notes on preparing this dish.
. I used Swerve brown sugar substitute but feel free to use regular brown sugar (you won’t hurt my feelings!) The same goes for the confectioner’s sugar.
. I used nectarines but peaches work great in this dish too.
. If you are looking for additional ways to lighten this dish up, try substituting Creamy Light Swiss Cheese wedges from Lauging Cow. I just cut little pieces of two wedges and top the nectarines with that. They melt beautifully and are a great alternative.
. I used flour tortillas because I like how they get crispy when toasted on the stove. You could substitute a favorite of mine, Ole-Extreme Wellness High Fiber Low Carb tortillas. Just note that they are pretty thin and may tend to tear and fall apart with the weight of the fruit and cheese.
. The last note is on the hot honey. You can make the honey as hot as you like with the addition of more or less calabrian chili flakes. So, taste and adjust, as desired.
