Candy Corn For Lunch

The children enjoyed our fall themed breakfast so much, yesterday, that I decided to carry the fun on into lunch, with a Moms Menu inspired recipe - Candy Corn Quesadillas.

Moms Menu suggests making this a layered affair, with melted cheese between two flour tortillas, and then more melted cheese, to form the candy corn, on top. But, we went with an open face, single layer look, instead.

Place a couple of tortillas on an ungreased cookie sheet. Piece third slices of American cheese around the edges.

Fill in the middle ring with a layer of grated cheddar cheese...

...and the center with grated mozzarella (we grated up two sticks of string cheese).

Pop the cookie sheet into a 400 degree (Fahrenheit) oven for a few minutes, until the cheese is melted.

Slice, with a pizza cutter, or sharp knife, into sixths, or eights, and serve with fresh fruit, and salsa, or pizza sauce for dipping.

It's great to be a homeschooler.

That used to be my favorite lunch as a kid, why don't I remember it more often to feed it to my kids?

This is one of my favorite lunches, too bad Selena won't eat them. My funny girl!

Cute. My kids love quesadillas and candy corn - this would be a big hit here.

I have a craving for it right now - too bad that daughter hates melted cheese :)
