Apple Feta Quesadillas

Apple Feta Quesadillas is a quick and easy snack recipe that combines apples and salty feta for a vegetarian quesadilla that is not so traditional but extra flavorful.

Apple Feta Quesadillas combine tart apples and salty feta for a not so traditional but extra flavorful take on the usual quesadilla.

Alright I know you may be thinking I’m crazy but I promise these quesadillas are amazing! We were still young newlyweds when my husband first proposed the apple-feta combo.

I was ambivalent but wanted to support him taking an interest in the kitchen. So he made them up and we sat down to take a bite.

I was a little nervous since he was also the man who had served me up tuna spaghetti when we were dating. TUNA & SPAGHETTI?!?!? It honestly wasn’t as nasty as it sounds but after 9 years he still hasn’t totally lived that one down.

This time I paired up the quesadillas with our favorite Greek Couscous Salad. It’s a good meatless meal that is a good weeknight option since you can make the salad ahead of time and quesadillas are always a easy quick option.

Ingredients

  • tortillas
  • apples
  • feta cheese

I’ve made this with a variety of apples. If you want a tart flavor use a variety like pink lady or for a sweeter flavor use a variety like honeycrisp, gala, or fuji.

How to make this:

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat.
  • Place one tortilla on the pan and sprinkle with some feta and top with apple slices. Fold in half.
  • Cook until bottom is lightly browned and then flip to toast the other side. Serve immediately.

We’ve made this countless times over the years and have figured out the tricks to making it less messy since the feta doesn’t really melt like a traditional quesadilla cheese does.

The trick is only using one tortilla and doing a half quesadilla. That way the filling has a chance to stay in the tortilla. The cheese melts enough  and when served right out of the pan they are fabulous.

TOP TIPS FOR COOKING WITH KIDS

This is a really easy recipe for kids to make (find more recipes for kids to make here). Although you can make this on the stove top this would also be really easy to make in the microwave or oven!

Since these cook so quickly it’s really important to prepare everything before starting. Slice all the apples first, then crumble the feta.
