In these delicious duck quesadillas, the fontina cheese complements the sweet and juicy plums in much the same way cream complements berries.

Preparation:

Step 1

To prepare the duck, combine olive oil, honey, Dijon, salt and pepper. Slather on duck. Let stand in fridge for at least 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 400°. Place the duck in a baking dish in the hot oven for 15-17 minutes (If you like your duck a little more rare, take it out after 12-14 minutes). Let the duck cool and slice into thin strips.

Step 2

To prepare the cheese filling, combine yogurt, Fontina, salt and pepper to taste, and cayenne. Set aside (You will also use some of this mixture for a garnish).

Step 3

To prepare the plums, combine the plums with olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the plums on a baking dish and bake for 10-15 minutes.

Step 4

When you ready to assemble your quesadillas, place tortillas down on a clean work space. Spread cheese mixture on one half of tortilla. Top with plums and then with duck. Fold over empty side of tortilla to create a half moon shape.

Step 5

Reduce temp of oven to 350°. Arrange tortillas on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until edges start to brown. Garnish with dollop of cheese filling mixture.
