Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes


  • 1 cheese grater
  • 1 cast-iron pan or frying pan optional


  • 2 whole tortillas (flour or corn)
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked
  • 1 whole apple sweet and crisp variety recommended
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • sour cream to serve optional


Prepare the fillings:

  • 1. Cook bacon (if needed) and set aside.
  • 2. Slice apple into about ⅓" thick slices. (You want to keep them a bit thick to add a nice crunch and notable flavour). Set aside.
  • 3. Shred cheese and set aside.

Heat the grill or skillet:

  • 1. Turn on the grill or stove to medium heat. If using a cast-iron or frying-pan, place on top and allow it to heat up while you assemble your quesadilla. *Note: you can cook directly on the grill top (a pan is not required)

Assemble the Quesadillas:

  • 1. Sprinkle about ¼ cup on one half of each tortilla shell. Leave some space around the edges for melting.
  • 2. Disperse about half an apple worth of slices on top of the cheese.
  • 3. Bacon time! Layer strips on top of the apple.
  • 4. Sprinkle another ¼ cup of cheese on top of the bacon.
  • 5. Fold the bare side of the shell over to contain the toppings, creating a half-moon shape.

Cook the Quesadillas:

  • 6. Grill or pan-fry until slightly charred or golden brown, flip and repeat on other side (about 3 minutes per side). Quesadilla is ready when both sides are golden and cheese is melted.
