I love a lot of things.

  • Pizza
  • Laughing
  • Books
  • Making restaurant-style food at home

Oh yeah, and like 500 other things, too. But let's focus on that last one up there. You know, for the sake of brevity.

Awhile back, I went to happy hour with a friend at a lovely place called Duke's. I used to visit this place on a semi-regular basis, but haven't been in some time. In that time, they had changed their happy hour menu a bit and I was forced to make a tough call about what to stuff my face with. I ended up choosing three mini-appetizers and, while all delicious, one really stuck out: Goat Cheese & Pesto Slider. I decided I needed to make it at home and that I did! However, let's be's a quesadilla! Sliders are served on rolls, duh! *looks around nervously, hoping that this statement is correct*


  • Flour tortilla
  • Pesto
  • Goat cheese
  • Tomato, sliced


  1. Lay your tortilla flat and cover one half of it with pesto.
  2. Coat the other half with a thin layer of goat cheese.
  3. Lay 2-3 tomato slices on the side with pesto and fold in half.
  4. Lightly coat a skillet with olive oil and place over medium-high heat.
  5. When the pan is warm, add the quesadilla to the skillet and let cook for 2-4 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Flip the quesadilla over and cook for another 2-3 minutes (Don't let it burn, like I did in the video! It's better when charcoal free!)
  7. Cut in half and serve.

You could make several of these to serve as appetizers or just eat one for a meal. It's like a delicious tortilla pizza. Yeah, it's like that...
