Brie, Apple, and Arugula Quesadillas

 I really did not know what to expect making this. It sounded good – but I was still a little scared. I love apples, and somehow the idea of mixing apple slices with cheese was a little… egh. However, it was delicious! I would suggest it for a fancy brunch. We had it for dinner and it was very good and I thought quite filling (fiance made himself 2) For example, one of my bridesmaids Lauren is very sophisticated/Audrey Hepburnish – loves French food and knows her cheeses. I would love to make this for her next time she visits.

Ingredients

-1 tbsp mustard

-2 tsp apple cider

-3 flour tortillas

-6 ounces Brie cheese, rind removed, cut into chunks.

-1-2 apples cut into thin wedges. I used Gala but you could also use Fuji.

-fresh arugula

-black pepper

As a disclaimer, my mom found this for me from “Cooking Light.” Follow these easy steps!

1. Combine the mustard with the apple cider and mix in a tiny bowl.

2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Plate your tortillas. Spread the mustard mizture on one half of  each tortilla. Place 1 tortilla in the skillet and let it sit for about 1-2 minutes. Then place some small chunks of cheese over the mustard half of the tortilla. Let this sit for another minute. You will see the cheese begin to melt. Arrange your apple slices over the cheese and top it with about a cup of rinsed arugula. Sprinkle on a little pepper. Fold the tortilla in half and press it gently with a spatula. Cook for another minute or two. (The original recipe said to flip it, but honestly I would have lost the inside if I did – you really don’t have to. )

3. Remove from pan. Do the same with remaining tortillas. Cut into wedges and enjoy!
