Do you enjoy eating cheese with your apples? It’s one of my favorite snacks! This delicious recipe combines the sweetness of an apple and sharpness of cheese into a warm delicious snack for anytime of the day. Serve this in your KES Club or as a special treat for your kids, they will love it! It’s also a great after school snack, at home, for your kids.
1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 whole wheat tortillas
1 large or 2 small apples, cored and thinly sliced
Natural cooking spray
Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese over one half of each tortilla. Arrange apple slices, barely overlapping, on top of each pile of cheese then sprinkle 2 more tablespoons cheese over apples on each tortilla and fold each in half. Spray a large skillet with oil spray and heat over medium high heat. Arrange half of the quesadillas in the skillet without overlapping and cook, gently flipping once, until cheese is melted and tortillas are golden brown on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Cut in half. Serve warm. This recipe yields approx 12 servings.
