Table Manners: Loves Quesadillas

How to eat quesadillas?


Dear Polite One, 

What is the proper way to eat cheese quesadillas?  My husband insists that this is a knife and fork food, while I see it as similar to a sandwich and think it should be considered a finger food.

Dear Loves quesadillas,

Quesadillas are considered finger food and can be picked up and eaten by our hands. However, let's think about the mess factor.  Will picking up the food mess up the fingers? If these are cooked in butter, fork and knife could keep your hands clean.  If the quesadillas are dry, pick them up.  Either way is fine.

Sincerely,

The Polite One
