Roasted Sweet Potato Quesadilla

Inspired by Al Forno's sweet potato appetizer pizza. While nowhere near as gourmet as the pizza version, this crisp, cheesy, onion-y sweet potato quesadilla is nonetheless delicious in all its Ratty-fied glory.

Roasted Sweet Potato Quesadilla
1 flour tortilla
1 baked sweet potato (1/2 cup mashed)
1/4 cup scallions
3-4 red onion rings
2 slices swiss cheese
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
2 Tbsp caramelized onions

1. Spread mashed baked sweet potato on one half of tortilla with a fork.
2. Layer swiss cheese, mozzarella, scallions, caramelized onions, and red onion rings on other half.
3. Fold in half and panini press for 6-8 minutes, or until golden brown grill marks appear.
