          Oh man, watching you grate that cheese reminds me of when I accidentally grated a chunk out of my hind doing it the way you are doing. Now I hold whatever it is I'm grating with a dish towel.

                          Seeing this vids makes me think what's the difference between quesadilla and calzone? Or they are the same thing?

                            Calzones are sealed and generally use more Italian cheeses and fillings. Also are baked instead of fried.

                                                And if you are using a non-stick pan after the first flip toss a little shredded cheese on the outside of the quesadilla, and repeat with the other side. Continue to cook until crispy. This way you get a wonderful quesadilla with a gooey inside and crispy cheese outside.
