Onion Sausage Quesadillas Recipe

Onion Sausage Quesadillas Recipe

My husband and I created this recipe after we realized you could add anything to caramelized onions and it would taste great. These are easy to whip up, and the filling can be made ahead of time.—Lisa Harrington, Halifax, Nova Scotia
