Brie, Apple and Bacon Quesadillas

Quesadillas are one of my go-to, quick dinners when I don’t feel like spending a lot of time making something (which is pretty much always when it comes to dinner!). Usually we do chicken & cheese or bean & cheese, but with fall approaching (maybe? It’s been wicked hot here, still! 😣), I thought it might be fun to change up our usual quesadilla fillings with something a little more seasonal.
These quesadillas make for a perfect lunch or light dinner – filled with melty brie cheese, maple infused apples, bacon and arugula! You really can’t go wrong with that combination! I also added in a bit of honey mustard for a little extra sweet & spicy kick!Brie, Apple, and Bacon Quesadillas @themerrythoughtBrie, Apple, and Bacon Quesadillas @themerrythoughtBrie, Apple, and Bacon Quesadillas
(makes about two 8-inch quesadillas)

– 1-2 apples, cored and cut into thin slices (I used Ginger Gold)
– pure maple syrup
– 8-inch flour tortillas
– honey mustard
– 1 round (8 ounces) Brie cheese, rind removed
– 3-4 slices of bacon, cooked and cut into small pieces
– arugula

In a large skillet, heat a tablespoon or two of maple syrup over medium heat. Add apple slices and cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly tender. Remove from pan and set apples aside. Wipe pan clean and spray lightly with cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Place a tortilla in the prepared skillet, spread a thin layer of honey mustard on tortilla. Top with slices of brie, apples, bacon, and arugula. Place another tortilla on top and cook for 2-4 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Cut into wedges and enjoy!Brie, Apple, and Bacon Quesadillas @themerrythoughtHave any favorite quesadilla fillings? I’d love to hear them as they’re one of my favorite quick dinners to make!
