You guys. Seriously. I promise this will be the last post until Marvelous Mondays on Sunday.

I’ve kind of been post crazy this week. But these Blueberry Brie Walnut Quesadillas were too crazy good to not share this week. Can you really resist a sweet quesadilla stuffed with fresh blueberries, walnuts, brie cheese and cinnamon and sugar? And then topped with a sweet little glaze? I sure as heck can’t.

True story. I was only going to eat two little wedges of these quesadillas. But I ended up eating four. It was hard to say no to eating more.

I made these quesadillas on Sunday, at a reasonable time, according to Ken. You see, I often don’t feel like getting up early on the weekends. Who does? This past weekend was no exception but I actually forced myself to get up early on Saturday and Sunday. Which made Ken a happy camper. He got to eat breakfast before 11am.

I made breakfast Sunday morning. But Saturday morning we went to Cucina del Arte, a little cafe in Palm Beach. They have the BEST breakfast ever. Every time we go there I order a cappuccino and the Huevos Rancheros. It’s the ultimate motivation to get up early.

The cappuccino is so cute. It comes with a little sugar cube stick for sweetening. I totally can’t resist it and think it’s the cutest little cappuccino I’ve ever seen. If you’re ever in the area, you should check the place out.

This quesadilla came to me on a whim.

Sometimes that happens. I randomly get an idea for a recipe at the weirdest times. I really can’t remember when this idea came to me. I had seen fruit quesadillas on Pinterest and subsequently in blog world. They looked good and I knew I wanted to do it. I just didn’t know how I would do it. But I figured it out fairly quickly. It was probably sometime in the middle of the night. I am not the best sleeper and I wake up often. My mind often wanders when I awake in the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes it’s recipes. Sometimes it’s blogging tutorials. And sometimes it’s the most random stuff you’ve ever heard of.

Enjoy the recipe.

      I need to start keeping a pen and paper with me at all times so I don’t forget ideas when I have them! Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you enjoyed this recipe!

    Oooh I remember these! :)

    When you posted all of the instagrams of these I got so hungry that I actually went out and got a quesadilla for lunch! LOL

    Really though, I don’t know how you do it. These look absolutely criminal.

      I don’t blame you for going out and getting a quesadilla! I think I could eat quesadillas every day. Actually, I had them 6 or 7 times within the past 2 weeks. I had these quesadillas, black bean, corn and cheese quesadillas, plain ole onion and cheese quesadillas. The list could go on!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Graham!

    Yum, these look good. Breakfast for sure and dessert too, maybe even as a midday snack as well because once you get the thought of these brie and blueberry quesadillas in your mind I imagine I wouldn’t stop eating them until the ingredients disappeared!

    Oh wow, this looks ridiculously delicious!! I don’t know why I’ve never thought to make a breakfast/dessert quesadilla, but I’d better start making up for lost time – that melty brie and those succulent blueberries look to die for!!

    I’m a sucker for brie so this is definitely calling out to me! Love the combo of flavors!! Quesadillas are awesome because they’re so simple and fast to whip up. These look delicious. :)
