Info
I was looking for a quick and easy, but interesting dish to make on the grill and I found this recipe on the Big Green Egg website. The quesadillas used grilled duck breast along with mango, jalapeno peppers, scallions, cilantro and mozarella cheese. After I grilled the duck breasts at 350 degrees (177 C) I changed the recipe slightly. Instead of assembling the quesadilllas and grilling them directly on the open grill grate, I added the Big Green Egg Cast Iron grill griddles to give the tortillas a nice even toasting. This quesadilla had a great mix of comlimentary flavors and I couldn’t stop eating them. If you want a relatively quick and tasty meal, check out the recipe on the Big Green Egg website.
