Happy almost Halloween! I don’t have a spooky-themed dinner, but this would be easy to whip up before taking little ones trick or treating, or would be quick to throw together between handing out Reeces. I get about 3 trick or treaters but I make sure to have good candy or the ones I get will never come back! And, just like hosting a party, you should serve what you’re happy to have leftover for yourself.
I tell ya. The apples are never ending. These past few weeks I’ve been trying to add them anywhere that made sense. Here they got to provide the crunch and were perfect with the melty cheese. This dinner is quick and easy. It would be great as a panini too.
Ingredients: (for 2 quesadillas)
3 slices of bacon
4 flour tortillas
1 large apple, sliced
6 oz manchego cheese
Pan fry the bacon until crisp, then drain and chop.
Heat a griddle or large pan to medium and spray with non-stick spray.
Lay the tortilla and top with sliced cheese.
Add sliced apple, and chopped bacon.
Top with the 2nd tortillas, lightly spray with non-stick spray and flip once. (this helps it to brown evenly)
Serve with some honey mustard for dipping!
The cheese was more of a splurge but for this very few ingredient dinner, it was worth it. Mixing manchego with cheddar might have enabled these to be cheesier.

Mmm awesome festive quesadilla, perfect for an early Halloween dinner!
This sounds yummy! Great combo!! I would consider yourself lucky… I spent almost $100 bucks on candy because last year we had SOOOO many kids! People will drive up in old jalopies from the sketchy side of town and drop off their 15 kids in our neighborhood. Gotta love living in a cookie cutter subdivision!
what a killer combo, apple and manchego go so well together, and the bacon, well, the bacon pairs well with everything 🙂
