Apple Gouda Quesadillas


Wonderful change to a plain old quesadilla. Sweet, salty and barbecued! Use any type of firm red apple. Additional options: add barbecued chicken or chopped jalapeno peppers. Serve warm with sour cream, salsa, guacamole or all three.

8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 green onions, chopped
2 red apples, cored and thinly sliced
2 cups shredded Gouda cheese


1. Preheat a grill for high heat

2. Brush oil onto one side of a tortilla, and place on a blate oil side down. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of mustard on the top side, and top with green onion, apple slices and about 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Place a second tortilla on top, and brush the top with olive oil. Repeat with remaining ingredients, stacking the quesadillas on the plate.

3. Brush the grilling surface with oil, and place the quesadillas carefully on the grill. Grill for about 3 minutes or until the bottom is crisp. Filp and grill on the other side until crisp. Remove from the grill to serving plates and cut into quarters. Serve warm.
