Grilled Banana Quesadillas

Grilled Banana Quesadillas from Paula Deen's magazine
4 (10") tortillas
3 T butter, melted
2 medium bananas, thinly sliced
1/2 c semi-sweet chocolate morsels *I used butterscotch
5 T firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 t ground cinnamon
vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce optional

1. Preheat grill to medium-high (350-400). Spray grill rack with nonstick, nonflammable cooking spray. Brush one side of tortillas with melted butter. Place tortillas on grill, buttered side down. Place banana slices evenly on one side of each tortilla. Top bananas evenly with morsels. Sprinkle each evenly with brown sugar and cinnamon. Fold tortillas over to cover bananas. Grill for 3-4 minutes per side, or until chocolate is melted and bananas are soft. Cut into wedges. Serve with ice cream and caramel sauce if desired. Serve immediately.
4 Servings** If you are feeding small kids, you could stretch this to 6 servings.

In my opinion: This was fabulous! My husband doesn't like chocolate and we didn't have any so I used butterscotch morsels and it was divine! I went one step further and put some chopped nuts on top. If you have whipped cream and cherries, go for it!
