This recipe is easy with only 4 ingredients. You’ll need a hot pan and spatula.
Cut your apples.
Fry the bacon into crumbles.
Heat up one tortilla in a pan over medium hear and assemble the sliced apples, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese on top. Place the second tortilla over the ingredients and flip carefully when the bottom shell has browned. Once the bottom tortilla has browned and the cheese has melted, remove the quesadilla to a platter and slice into four quarters and serve.
What kind of apples should I use?
Honeycrisp! These sweet juicy apples are a fall favorite in my household and we go through them quickly.
I’ve been enjoying them in salads and my kids have gone crazy this fall making batch after batch of apple crisp.

Learn how to make cheese quesadillas with apples, bacon and cheddar
- 1 Honeycrisp apple, cored and thinly sliced
- 4 pieces of cooked bacon, crumbled
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 4 flour tortillas
- Bring a large skillet pan to medium heat. Once the pan is hot, place the tortilla in the pan and layer on the bacon pieces, apples and cheddar cheese.

Flip the quesadilla being careful to keep ingredients sandwiched between the two tortillas. Once the other tortilla is golden brown, your quesadilla is ready.
