Here is a quick snack recipe.  It would be a great after school snack, or even lunch for kids.  Apples and cheese are always such a great combo, and it works especially well in quesadilla form.

What you need:

  • 1-2 granny smith apples
  • olive oil
  • tortillas
  • brie, sliced as thin as you can get it
  • Optional: bacon, cook and cut up to put in the quesadilla

What to do:

  1. Slice the apple into really thin pieces.
  2. Add some olive oil to a skillet, heat over medium high heat, then add the apples.  Stir occasionally and cook for about 5 minutes or so, until the apples get tender.
  3. Arrange the cheese, apples (and bacon?) on a tortilla and top with another tortilla (or fold if you want a small portion)

    Ready to grill

  4. Grill the quesadilla in the skillet you already used for the apples until the brie is nice and gooey.  You’re done 🙂

Stuffed Mushrooms

I got this quick, cheap and easy recipe from one of my good friends, Stuph!  It’s a great to serve as an appetizer.

What you need:

  • Stuffing Mushrooms, one or two packs
  • A few cloves of garlic
  • One onion
  • Olive oil
  • Bread crumbs, about 1/2 cup
  • Parmesan cheese, about 1/2 cup, or more

What to do:

  1. Cut the stems out of the mushrooms in a circular motion and save the stem
  2. Mince the stems along with a clove or two of garlic and some onion, easiest in a food processor
  3. Put a little olive oil in a frying pan and cook the mushroom stems/garlic/onions for a few minutes
  4. Turn off the heat and add the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese, and mix well.
  5. Put a spoonful or more in each mushroom.
  6. Bake stuffed mushrooms in the oven for about 10-15 minutes or until the mushroom is cooked.

Do ahead: you can prepare the mushrooms fully, and then pop in the oven right before serving
