Double-cheese and Onion Quesadilla

I think all families have a go-to meal, and quesadillas are one of ours. But every once in awhile I get tired of just cheese quesadillas and want something a little more special. I think the combination of cheese and onion is absolutely sublime.

1 C cheddar cheese
2 C white cheddar cheese
1 onion (you may not use all of it, depending on your preference)
sage leaves (fresh or dried)
8-12 8-inch tortillas (my family likes flour and I like corn so we do both)

Thinly slice the onion.

Grate your cheeses and put them together in a bowl.

Heat your skillet or whatever you prefer to use for quesadillas. Melt some butter (bacon grease also works well) over the surface. Place a tortilla on top and layer the onions over it.

Sprinkle on about 1 tsp sage leaves (1/2 tsp if dried) and cheese to cover to the edges. How much you actually put on really depends on your personal tastes, but we like cheese. 

Top with another tortilla. The onion will cook underneath these cheeses and soften, yielding a lovely, slightly sweet flavor. When the tortilla on the bottom starts to bubble up, flip it.

Do the same to the other side, waiting for it to bubble. Remove to another plate. Add more butter to the skillet and repeat with the remaining ingredients.

And just for good measure, here's the corn tortilla one I made for myself.

Serve with a little sour cream and salsa if desired.
