I love that there is such a wide variety in apple recipes. Amy of Fearless Homemaker brought appetizers today! Not just any appetizer but one FULL of bacon, cheese and tart apples! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy those ingredients make me. You know what else… with those ingredients, they can totally be enjoyed any hour of the day – for snack or meal! 

Apple Cheddar And Bacon Quesadillas

hi everyone! i’m amy from fearless homemaker, + i’m so excited to be guest posting for rachel today. apples are one of my favorite fall flavors, so when rachel offered me the chance to create a new apple recipe for her An Apple A Day series? i jumped on the chance. initially, i planned to make something sweet, but then i remembered eating apples + cheddar together on a cheese plate in the past, + came up with a twist on that – these apple, cheddar + bacon quesadillas.

while the flavors + ingredients are simple, they all work wonderfully together. the sweet, slightly tart apples, the creamy, rich cheese + the salty, meaty bacon all combine fabulously! and the best part? these are super easy + quick to make, coming together in less than 15 minutes from start to finish, so they’d make a great speedy weeknight dinner or after-school snack.

first, you get your ingredients prepped. see how pretty apples, bacon + cheddar look together?

then, you start making your quesadilla. lay 1 tortilla in your heated + lightly-oiled pan, stack on your cheese, apple slices + bacon. top with a little salt + pepper, another tortilla, + heat for just a few minutes on each side, until the tortillas are lightly browned + the cheese is ooey gooey + delicious. here’s what it looked like before adding on the top flour tortilla, so you can get a sense of it.
