Macedonian Quesadillas

macedonian quesadillas

A Macedonian summer dish without a tomato and a pepper is not a Macedonian dish. Add a crumble, or few, of sheep cheese (similar to feta), and it’s complete.

Take away those three ingredients and it’s someone else’s dish, not ours. 

Like many of you out there, I modify most of our meals to suit my family’s taste. You will probably never ever see my husband eating a traditional Mexican quesadilla, but you serve him a Macedonianized (that’s not a word, is it?) quesadilla and he is game! Same goes for my father, my mother, even myself.

But that’s the beauty of food; you can change it up any way you wish and it will always be delicious, especially to those whom you serve it to.

Or not.

I’m sure someone will disapprove – we all have a black sheep in the family. 😉

  2. Thank you for sharing this at my link party. I just scrolled through the comments because I was sure I had commented on this before. I love one ethnicity varying another’s cuisine to make it it’s own. The great melting pot at it’s best

  3. I must be Macedonian at heart because I think your quesadilla is fantastic 🙂 You’re absolutely right, that’s the beauty of food – making it your own and feeling the love when your family devours it! Congrats on the Top 9, Kate and have a fabulous weekend!

  4. I absolutely approve 🙂 I think it’s interesting to look just at food that’s passed down from generation to generation and see how it’s changed to fit the palates of each. I know it’s happened in my family!

  5. My family would be all over these! I took my daughter to Costco and she walked up to me with a huge box of feta and big ole puppy dog eyes. Now I have so many dishes I am making with feta. This will be added to our menu! Thanks Kate 🙂

  6. I came to see your citrus-berry terrine, which is gorgeous with the strawberries, by the way, but I got totally distracted by this! I don’t know anything about Macedonian food, but these sound amazing!

  7. Nice recipe kate!
    Yeah… I agree with u, thats the beauty of food… u can switch up with ur taste!
    I think I have to find the Tortillas first, but I want this for tom breakfast… nah, what should I do now? LOL
    Can I switch up the tortillas with “thin pancake”? 😀
    Btw, tq for sharing the recipe 😉

  8. Kate… 🙂 I am sure your hubby loves your version of a mexican dish ! I love it though by the sound of it. I must learn how to make my own homemade flour tortillas first before I can make your macedonian quesadillas 🙂 Well done !

  9. Love it! It’s so cool mixing different cultures’ flavor profiles and techniques. I wonder, though…perhaps you can switch one ingredient at a time, and before your husband knows it he’ll be eating a totally Mexican dish! 🙂
