apple, cheddar + bacon quesadillas

by Amy on 5 September 2012

hi friends, i’m so excited to be guest posting at Baked By 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.

there you have it! a quick, easy + absolutely delicious snack, appetizer, or light meal.

apple, cheddar + bacon quesadillas

serves 1 as a meal, or 2 as a snack, a fearless homemaker original!


2 flour tortillas (can substitute whole wheat, if you prefer) – I used Mission medium flour tortillas
1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 apple, thinly sliced
2 strips of bacon, chopped, cooked + drained


heat a large saute pan over medium heat. spray lightly with non-stick spray.

create your tortilla – start with 1 flour tortilla, then the cheddar cheese, apple slices, + bacon. top with salt + pepper to taste.

add one more tortilla on top, + heat for 3-4 minutes a side, flipping once, either tortillas are golden brown + cheese has completely melted. move to a cutting board, allow to cool for a minute, then cut into triangles + enjoy!
