Cheddar-Apple Quesadilla

Makes 4 Servings
Serving Size: 1 Quesadilla



The combination of sharp, rich cheddar with sweet tart apples always wins me over. It's classic yet somehow unique, especially when grilled up in a flour tortilla, so the cheese melts and the apple softens slightly. This takes less than 5 minutes to whip up and will leave you feeling great all morning.

Preheat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.

Fan out the apple slices over the bottom half of each tortilla and top with the cheddar cheese. Fold the tortillas in half. Working in batches, place the quesadillas in the skillet and weigh them down with a smaller heavy skillet or an ovenproof plate topped with a heavy can. Cook until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are golden brown, about 1-1/2 minutes per side. Cut in half and eat warm.
