Apple and Brie Quesadillas – easy and delicious meatless meal! Crisp apples with melty brie and peppery arugula.
Is it really Monday again? How did that happen so fast?
Well how was the weekend? I hope it was fantastic!
Ours was good. It is still so stupid hot here in Texas that I kind of didn’t want to do anything. Like even running to Walmart (as I’m doing every other day right now to look for new pumpkin goodies) seemed too difficult.
I keep reminding myself of our Christmas roadtrip last year and how we had to drive through snow in Dallas.
C’mon cold weather! C’mon ⅛″ of snow!
These Apple and Brie Quesadillas taste like fall so at least we have that! They’re full of a (super simple) apple cider mustard, brie, apple slices, and fresh arugula. All that between crispy flour tortillas! So good and so easy! You can have dinner ready in about 15 minutes!
If you’re in the mood for a heartier quesadillas, BBQ Chicken Quesadillas are a favorite in my house!

How To Make Apple and Brie Quesadillas
- Whisk together mustard and apple cider in a small bowl
- Spread each tortilla with the mustard mixture
- Place one tortilla in a hot skillet over medium heat, mustard side up
- Arrange ⅓ of the brie on half of the tortilla and top with apple slices, arugula, and black pepper
- Fold tortilla in half and press with a spatula to stick the sides together
- Cook about 2 minutes, until golden brown, flip and cook another 2 minutes on the other side
- Cut into 4 wedges
- Repeat with remaining ingredients
Can You Make Quesadillas Ahead?
I don’t recommend making quesadillas ahead of time because you want the tortillas to have a crispness and the cheese to be gooey and delicious.
The good news is that these take about 10 minutes to prepare so you won’t have to spend a ton of time on them!
Tips and Tricks
- I like to do quesadillas on my electric griddle because I can do multiple quesadillas at a time which is important when you have several kids.
- If you don’t love brie, a really good white cheddar would be delicious in this!
- Leftover arugula works really well in grain bowls like this Farro Caprese Salad!
