Autumn Glory Apple Quesadillas

These quesadillas are the perfect quick, seasonal weeknight meal that the whole family will love! The Autumn Glory apples are paired with ham, cheddar, and gouda and sandwiched between two golden tortillas. The sweet and salty combo is to die for!

I'm sooooooo excited to be headed out to Orlando this week with Superfresh Growers to the PMA Fresh Summit. I'll be at their booth handing out samples of these apple quesadillas to 20,000+ of my favorite friends! If you're there, please stop by. I'd love to meet you!

Raise of hands, if you've heard of Autumn Glory apples before. 

They're a new-ish apple variety made by crossing the Fuji and Golden apples. They have hints of cinnamon and notes of caramel (I know, it sounds too good to be true, but it's not!). They're non-GMO, grown in Washington state, the perfect fall apple, and seriously soooooooo good. My favorite ways to enjoy them:

  • sliced and served with nut butter
  • soaked in vodka and part of a fabulous sangria (<----- do it!)
  • cooked into quesadillas (recipe below)

Apples and cheese were meant to be together, and not just on a cheeseboard!

We love quesadillas at our house because they're so quick to throw together, they're liked by the whole family (ie. they allllllllll happily devour them), and often you have most everything you need on hand. Annnnnnd, the dipping sauce couldn't be easier: it's just two ingredients! Stir together equal parts of your favorite BBQ sauce + plain Greek yogurt. I told you it was easy!!

Autumn Glory Apple Quesadillas


1 Autumn Glory apple (sliced thinly)
4 flour tortillas
12 slices Black Forest uncured ham
6 slices Gouda cheese
8 ounces Shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 tablespoons Butter
  -----FOR THE SAUCE----
1⁄3 cup Plain greek yogurt
1⁄3 cup Kansas City BBQ Sauce


To make the quesadillas: For each quesadilla, place a buttered tortilla face-down in a skillet over medium heat. Then add ½ cup of cheddar cheese, 6 ham slices, apple slices, and 3 gouda slices, then top with another tortilla. Cook (on both buttered sides) until the tortilla is golden brown and the cheese is melted, approximately 3 or 4 minutes per side. Slice into triangles.

To make the sauce: In a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients (BBQ sauce and yogurt). Serve alongside the quesadillas for dipping.
