An excellent and elegant combination.


1 tablespoon Butter
1 large Onion, peeled and sliced
4 burrito-size flour Tortillas
6 ounces Brie cheese, sliced
1-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2 small, ripe Bartlett Pears, cored and thinly sliced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Thyme


Melt butter in a large skillet. Add onion and cook over medium heat for 10-15 minutes or until very soft, stirring frequently. Lay tortillas on a flat surface. Place equal amounts of cheeses, pears, carmelized onions and thyme on half of each tortilla; fold over to enclose filling. Place on a grill over low heat and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side or until cheese is melted and tortilla is crisp and golden.
