Apple, Cheddar and Bacon Quesadillas with Caramelized Shallots

  • Prep Time 0:15
  • Cook Time 0:06
  • Estimated Cost $7.00

Honestly, I just wanted to make a quick quesadilla for dinner, clean up the kitchen and be done for the night, but you know me—I can’t just cook something and eat it like a normal person—I have to memorialize it. It just looked so pretty and the evening light was so lovely and my camera was sitting right there and I just couldn’t resist.

So here you go. Now I’m really turning off my computer.


  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil Pantry
  • 2 shallots, sliced thinly $0.50
  • 2 slices raw, uncured bacon $1
  • 2 whole wheat tortillas $2.50 for 6
  • 1 Granny Smith (or other tart) apple, sliced thinly $0.50
  • 2 oz. white or yellow cheddar cheese, sliced very thinly $2.50 for 8 oz.
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry


  1. Heat the olive oil in a small frying pan over medium-low heat and add the shallots. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 8-10 minutes or until shallots are very soft.
  2. While shallots caramelize, cook the bacon on both sides in a large dry frying pan over medium-high heat until very crisp (2-3 minutes). Drain on paper towels and chop roughly. Reserve half of the bacon grease in the frying pan.
  3. To assemble the tortillas, place 1/4 of the bottom half of a tortilla in an even layer. Top with a layer of sliced apples and chopped bacon. Top with another 1/4 of the cheese. Fold tortilla over so you have a half circle. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
  4. Cook the quesadillas in the bacon grease (or use olive oil if you prefer) for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until the tortilla is crisp and the cheese has melted.
  5. Serve the quesadillas cut into wedges, topped with the caramelized shallots.

Yes! I almost peed my pants when I read reserve half your bacon grease. Bacon grease is so delicious and flavorful its worth whatever badness it possesses, in small quantities anyway right?
