{Recipe} Kielbasa and Caramelized Onion Quesadilla

Since you're all dying with suspense for my recipe for the Giant Eagle Market District and Creta Farms "I Heart Picnics" Event, I'll share it before I pop over to the Market District in Robinson Township.  If you're in the area, please stop by!  I'll be there from 11:00am-early afternoon. 
I sincerely hope I don't botch this demo!

{Kielbasa and Caramelized Onion Quesadilla}
nonstick spray
½  white onion, peeled, then sliced into thin half-moons
1 tbsp. herbs de Provence
1 Giant Eagle low fat white tortilla
1 oz. Creta Farms Kielbasa Sausage link, thinly sliced on the diagonal
1 oz. Giant Eagle Part Skim Mozzarella, cut into thin, 2-inch strips
Cracked Black Pepper
2 tbsp. Light Sour Cream
1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 Chives, finely chopped

Start by preheating a large skillet on medium heat, spraying with nonstick spray, and adding the thinly sliced onions.  Turn the heat down to medium-low after the first 2 minutes.  Sprinkle in the herbs de Provence.  Let the onions cook for an hour, stirring every 15-20 minutes. Set aside to cool and wipe out skillet.
While onions are caramelizing, mix sour cream, Worcestershire sauce and chives together in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Spray skillet with nonstick spray, and turn heat to medium-high.  Once skillet is heated, add one tortilla, and heat through, about one minute. Add slices of kielbasa in a single layer over one half of the tortilla. Repeat with onion mixture and cheese slices.  Salt and pepper as desired.  Fold unadorned half over, to create a half moon shape. Immediately flip over, and let the cheese melt, about one minute. Remove from pan, cut into 4 wedges with a knife or pizza cutter.
Serve wedges with sour cream dip.

Caramelized onions, spiked with herbs de Provence. 

And, because it's a healthy alternative to regular kielbasa, I've gathered up the rest of the health stats for this quesadilla!
Health Stats
One 4-piece quesadilla and dipping sauce has approximately 273 calories, 15 grams fat, 19 grams protein. 

If you don't want a creamy dipping sauce, go for some spicy barbecue sauce. The flavors will compliment the sausage and onions.

I'll see you soon with a a sample!
