Honeycrisp Apple Quesadillas with Bacon and Cheddar

Sometimes a sandwich for lunch can get pretty boring, don't you think? Try something new. Enjoy sweet fall honeycrisp apples by pairing them with salty, crisp bacon and sharp cheddar cheese in these lunchtime quesadillas.

Couldn't you just sink your teeth into these?

It's apple picking season here in Ohio and honeycrisp apples are a local favorite. These tart and firm apples promise to fill your mouth with juice once you bite into  one. Luckily, you can find this sweet fruit in any local grocery store. Fall is the season!

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. Those recipes will be featured on Home & Plate soon.

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. Top with the other tortilla and cook for about two minutes or until the bottom tortilla is golden brown. Use a spatula to check often. Flip the quesadilla being careful to keep ingredients sandwiched between the two tortillas. Once the other tortilla is golden brown, your quesadilla is ready.
