Whats in the Lunchboxes: Grindah Quesadillas

Getting tired of eating sandwiches? Sometimes I get tired just making them. I like to find alternatives so that Tia and Brian aren't always eating the same ol' sammy.

For each portion:

Cooking spray
2 whole wheat tortillas (small or medium)
1/4 c shredded mozzarella
1 slice provolone
3 thin slices each ham and salami
5 slices pepperoni
1 TBSP banana pepper rings or 1 tsp hoagie spread (chopped cherry peppers)
2 thin tomato slices

Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Spray pan and one side of each tortilla, place tortillas in pan sprayed side down.

Top each with mozzarella, provolone torn into small pieces, then meats. Cook until the underside of the tortillas are golden brown with dark spots. Add tomato and peppers to one half and top with the other (filling sides together).

Cut into 4 or 6 triangles and serve with marinara, salsa, mustard, or pesto mayonnaise.

You can wrap in foil if there is no microwave and they will still be room temp at lunch time. They stay even warmer if you put them (still wrapped in foil) into a small thermos.
