I cut them into quarters and serve them for brunch along with scrambled eggs and fresh fruit,” she notes.

"Made as directed with the exception I baked them in the oven instead of finiishing on a griddle. Great taste that went over very well as an appetizer. The brie, balsamic vinegar, apples and onions made for a very elegant combination. Will definately make again."

"I was tired of my old appetizer recipes and wanted to make something different for an upcoming party. This recipe turned out to be a GREAT hit! Everyone was expecting it to be Mexican and pleasantly surprised at the unique taste. I modified the recipe slightly. I added cooked applewood bacon pieces to the mixture. I also double the recipe and for the other half, I used fresh mozzerella instead of the brie. In addition, I cooked the quesadillas in the oven at 475 F for 7-8 minutes until crispy and lightly brown. I had several requests for the recipe. This one is definitely a keeper! Next time I may try it with cooked chicken."
