ham and cheese quesadilla with a reduced balsamic glaze

1 pound thick cut sliced hat
1 pound gruyere cheese (shredded)
10" whole wheat flour tortillas
balsamic glaze (recipe below)

balsamic glaze:
1 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

pour the balsamic vinegar into a pot. bring to a boil, then reduce to a low simmer. cover and simmer for about 1 1/2 hours, or until reduced to about 1/4 cup. set aside.

making the quesadilla:
heat the whole wheat flour tortilla on the stove on both sides. place a pan on the stove on medium high heat. sprinkle some of the cheese on half of the quesadilla. then place a couple slices of cut ham, and add a little more cheese. fold the quesadilla in half, and cook on both sides until the cheese starts to melt, and the tortilla starts to brown.

remove the quesadilla from the pan, cut into slices, and drizzle the balsamic glaze over.

enjoy :)
