I'm delighted to be the inaugural reviewer (and, admittedly less than stellar) photo submitter for this recipe! It is FANTASTIC! Not only does it taste great, but it's super versatile and easily thrown together for a quick weeknight meal. I had every intention of following the recipe, but I did have to make a few tweaks out of necessity. I had some baby bellas that needed used or pitched, so I used them in place of the cremini (and, I imagine any shroom would be great, per your personal preference). As I was mixing the cream cheese and goat cheese, I noticed mold/fuzz on the remaining cream cheese in tub. Having just got over a nasty stomach bug, I elected to be safe rather than sorry and pitched it. I had no cream cheese back up, so I subbed lite sour cream and goat. At the last minute, I added a little fresh mozz to help add creaminess. These were delicious. Both Mr. LTH and I thoroughly enjoyed them (he even ate my second half!). I paired them w/ "Best Black Beans" for a simply delicious nutrient dense quick meal. THANK YOU, rudechack!

These were pretty good but lacking something that I just cant put my finger on.

OMG, these are amazing! I changed a few things based on what I had on hand, I used regular button mushrooms, lite cream cheese and spinach tortillas from Trader Joe's. I also added a splash of red wine with the balsamic. I used both red and green onion, both were great. Thanks Soooooo much for the recipe, I've already made it 3 times in one week:)

Absolutely delicious! I used a variety of mushrooms. After cooking the mushrooms and onions I mixed everything but the mozzarella together. This made for easier storing between mixing and making the hot quesadillas for my guests.

5 stars for being easy AND delicious! This really is a great recipe. my husband asked me to make it more often. I have made this a few times substituting things based on what I had at the time also. For instance, one time I made this w/o cream cheese,...used baby bella mushrooms instead of cremini and plain goat cheese instead of herbed. I also find that red/purple onions are perfect for this recipe. Even my 2 yr old enjoys it with no complaints. It's simple, you cant go wrong.

I found a Rosemary crusted goat cheese at the market. It is a firm cheese like cheddar. WOW!! I was so blown away by this cheese, that I forgot about the mozzarella and didn't think it needed the cream cheese. I sauteed the shrooms, added some sliced onions, garlic salt, pepper and the Balsamic. Reduced it and assembled this wonderful creation! Please forgive me, as a side note. About this cheese, I liked it better cold then warmed but I am still trying to get used to the flavor of goat cheese. This was a delicious and very unusual quesadilla! ! Thank you Rudechack

good but slimy, I think maybe some chicken would give the mushrooms/cheese something to grab on to, will try that addition next time.

They needed a little more oomph, so I added some basil, crushed red pepper, and sun-dried tomatoes & they were quite yummy!
