GETTING FIGGY WITH IT QUESADILLA

Four slices of fig-tastic cheesy goodness

Four slices of fig-tastic cheesy goodness.

Just when your toaster oven thought it was safe from your simple seduction sundries, here comes a kinky quesadilla.  Buying the ingredients should be the toughest part.  Figs can be pricey, but are technically aphrodisiacs of Biblical significance.  But isn’t a night of unspeakable acts worth the effort?  These quesadillas also make great appetizers to pre-assemble and take to backyard barbecues, Superbowl parties, or swingers orgies.

Ingredients:
1. 1 medium sized tortilla
2. 4 thin slices of brie
3. 1 tablespoon of fig jam (or sliced figs)
4. 1 handful of crushed candied walnuts

Step 1
Spread the fig jam evenly over half the tortilla, place brie and candied walnuts on the other half, and close together.

Step 2
Place it in toaster oven and cook for dark toast mode or grill in a pan until each side is browned.  Cut into four pieces and serve plain, with sliced avocado or with mango salsa.

Shake it, baby!  Shake some salt on those eggs.

Congratulations!  If you are making this dish, your date slept over.  This dish takes a while so they better be worth it or you’re better off toasting some Eggos and stuffing them in a cab.  But if this is the ONE, or just an incredible lay you want to keep around, try this dish on for size.  It also works great for brunch with friends or family too.  Note that not all these ingredients are necessary and you can throw your own favorites in there, but you need the tortilla and eggs.

Ingredients:
1. 4 eggs beaten
2. 2 medium or one burrito sized tortilla
3. 2 green onions chopped coarsely
4. 1 sausage (chicken or pork) cut into thin bite sized pieces
5. 1 handful of spinach
6. ½ a tomato chopped coarsely
7. 1 handful of shredded
Mozzarella or cheddar

Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a small casserole dish with butter or olive oil.  Stuff the tortilla into the casserole dish so that it lines it.  Break up the tortilla if necessary.

Step 2
Add the spinach, sausage, tomato and green onions over the tortilla lined casserole dish.  Pour in the eggs, which should fall towards the bottom and submerge all the ingredients. Throw the shredded mozzarella on top.

Step 3
Bake the frittata for 35-45 minutes until it rises and the cheese on top should be browned like a crust.  Remove the dish from the oven and allow it to cool.  Finally cut it into squares and spatula up an appropriate sized chunk.  Serve with salsa, hot sauce or other flavors to sex it up.
