1 onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon golden brown sugar
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 1/2 cups grated smoked Gouda cheese
4 10-inch-diameter flour tortillas
2 ounces sliced Prosciutto
Melt 2 tablespoons butter in heavy medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion, brown sugar and vinegar, saute until onion is golden brown, stirring frequently, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat. Cool to room temperature.
