Quick Quesadilla Recipe

Quick quesadillas with cheese and apple by

Cheese and apple is a staple after school snack, so this version gives it a tasty new spin without a great deal of extra effort.

Prep time: Five minutes

Cook time:
Five minutes

Makes: 4

2 dessert apples - like Braeburn or Pink Lady
150g cheddar cheese
4 soft tortilla wraps


1. Cut the apples in half, and half again. Take out the core and then very finely slice them all up. Grate the cheese.

2. Place a soft tortilla in the base of a large heavy-bottomed frying pan then scatter a thin layer of cheese over half of the circle. Place a layer of sliced apple, then scatter with another thin layer of grated cheese.

3. Turn on the heat, fold the tortilla in half and press down. Allow to cook for a minute and then flip over to cook the other side. Transfer for a large wooden board and then repeat with the remaining tortillas, cheese and apple.

4. Cut into triangles and serve as a snack, or with salad as a light meal.

Cook's tip: You can use any number of fillings in these quick quesadillas - try spreading a layer of tomato paste and scattering with grated mozzarella for pizza flavour.
