A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
After a thorough clean of our refrigerator and freezer, Meghan and I took a trip to our local Whole Foods for our weekly shopping trip to restock. As we pick our weekly CSA share on Monday, we made an educated guess at what veggie we would get and prepared our menu. We had an apple left from last week, and Meghan had seen a recipe on TV that she wanted to make: Brie and apple quesadillas. Self-proclaimed as “not a good cook” there are some things that Meghan cooks very well, and that includes most recipes that include cheese. These quesadillas combine fresh local fruit (the apple) with commonly available ingredients (cream cheese and Brie) to add a new spin on the classic quesadilla. Paired with a fresh salad and a chilled adult beverage (a Peg Leg ale for me and a glass of wine for Meg), it made for a quick, easy and delicious dinner.
Spread the cream cheese over 2 tortillas. Top with apple and sliced Brie. Top with a tortilla.
Over medium low heat warm the oil in a cast iron skillet.
Cook the quesadillas 3-5 minutes per side, until slightly browned. The Brie will melt nicely. Slice into 6 slices per quesadilla and serve with a salad. This is a great midweek dinner. I think the Brie would also pair nicely with pears and even plums.
