Apple Brie Quesadillas
“With onions, apples and cheese, these quesadillas are a surprising change from typical versions,” reports Heather Kahn Gisi of San Dimas, California. “They have sweet and savory flavors I just love. I cut them into quarters and serve them for brunch along with scrambled eggs and fresh fruit,” she notes.
