apple and brie (or cheddar!) quesadillas with maple mustard sauce

doesn't that just sound amazing?
(the answer is yes, ahem.)

these would be perfect for a brunch with a souffle.
or as a dinner for one, when your honey is away.
or as an appetizer for a cocktail party.
even as a dessert!

any time of day, they cook up fast and easy and are a crowd pleaser.
my toddler loved them.
and when i say love, i mean, love.
like ate one and a half by himself.

Apple and Brie Quesadillas with Maple Mustard Sauce
Makes 3 quesadillas.
Somewhere online(?)
Small pat of butter
1 apple, color....your choice, sliced veeeeery thinly
1/2 small wheel of good quality Brie (or good white cheddar, if your husband doesn't like Brie)
3 largish flour tortillas
2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
2 tablespoons maple syrup
Crumbled bacon, optional, to taste (but I recommend it!)

Heat the butter in a grill pan (or use your grill and omit the butter) until sizzling.

Grill apple slices till golden brown grill marks appear.
(I would grill them darker than the pictures show but I was hungry.)

Lay out the grilled apples on half the tortilla and add cheese, to taste, on top.  White cheddar for your husband.  Brie for me.

Fold and grill!

Meanwhile, make the sauce.
Combine the mustard and syrup in a small bowl and whisk until combined.

Slice up the golden quesadillas and serve with crumbled bacon and drizzle with mustard syrup dipping sauce!  Enjoy!
