My Taste Buds are Warped

by Meghann on March 10, 2011

I have a new ‘Meghann is either a creative genius or has deformed taste buds‘ recipe for you to try.


My Sister pretty much gave me free reign of her pantry and fridge for lunch and told me to ‘go at it.’ I found a bag of corn tortillas, an apple, and some cheese that sparked an idea.

I covered one corn tortilla with the sliced apple and some cheddar cheese


Then smeared the other side with apple butter.


Put them together, bake it in a toaster, and what do you got?


A very odd Sweet Apple & Cheese Corn Tortilla Sandwich.


Impressive, no?

I really liked it, but – you know me- I really dig that sweet and savory combo. WARNING trying to eat this as a ‘sandwich’ is a messy situation. :

On the side I had some raw green beans (LOVE the CRUNCH) and some Honey Roasted Peanuts.


Leaving for TAMPA now.

Totally stopping at Starbucks along the way.

Cake Pop here I come!

or should I get the Peanut Butter Cupcake? πŸ˜‰

I actually eat apple quesadillas fairly often πŸ™‚

2 Meghann March 10, 2011 at 1:18 pm

Yes, but do you use corn or flour tortillas? πŸ˜‰

3 Fit Chick Britt March 11, 2011 at 11:23 am

I do love corn tortillas but I usually use wheat. I’ve never tried it with apple butter either.

I LOVE the combo of sweet and savory! I have yet to try apples & cheddar…but I love the combo of apples and blue cheese πŸ™‚

I think adding sweetness to just about anything is delicious. Your tastebuds aren’t warped to me!!

Cake pop!!

I don’t think I like half the things you eat, but I really admire the creativity that goes into it. It’s better than my boring PB sandwich or pasta with cheese. πŸ™‚

My vote is for the PB cupcake!! I still have yet to try the apple and cheese combo but it’s one I keep seeing over and over on blogs. I think your tortilla looks great!

The meal sounds good, except I wouldn’t have used corn tortillas — that is the odd part for me!

That sounds like an interesting combo but I’d totally try it! My vote is for the peanut butter cupcake. Yum! πŸ™‚

I think 80% of my comments on your blog revolve around me telling you how brave you are for your food flavor combos . . .

Let me up my percentage by 5% and say . . . YOUR BRAVE πŸ˜€

20 Ashley March 10, 2011 at 2:04 pm

It sounds interesting. I don’t think I would have thought of it. Have a great drive back! πŸ™‚

21 Ash @ Good Taste Healthy Me March 10, 2011 at 2:08 pm

The weird part is the apple butter. But don’t trust me; I would have just had melted cheese on the tortillas with sliced apples on the side – hold the apple butter!!

27 Stefanie @TheNewHealthy March 10, 2011 at 2:40 pm

I think we share the same tastebuds because I would eat this for sure! Anything sweet and savory has my heart! πŸ™‚

28 Stacey March 10, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Mmm cheese and apple – it’s a winning combo. I would never have thought of putting it in a tortilla though. Crunchy!

29 Rachel @ Grateful Girl Goes Gluten Free March 10, 2011 at 2:42 pm

Cake pops! You really do love the savory/sweet combo woah!

That looks delicious. Although a lot of people have ALSO told me that I have warped taste buds, so perhaps I’m not the most objective judge?

My grandpa always used to say, “apple pie without cheese is like a huge without a squeeze.” Maybe that’s applicable in this situation as well? πŸ˜‰

I love apples and cheese! I’m from New England; we learn to eat our apple pie with cheese at a young age. Just got back from Starbucks and I went with the salted caramel sweet bite – yum!

34 Jeni @ stepping out March 10, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Oh my word! That looks absolutely amazing!

It’s not that weird! There is such a thing as Apple and Cheddar Pie!

36 Kacy March 10, 2011 at 4:17 pm

I’d totally go with the Cake Pop, they’re just so fun. I love sweet and savory combos, so I won’t knock it!

37 Kate March 10, 2011 at 4:19 pm

That’s not weird at all!

(Says the girl who grew up always putting a slice of cheese on apple pie, though, so maybe it is?)

38 Colleen @ ColleenontheRun March 10, 2011 at 4:24 pm

That sounds amazing! I love the savory/sweet combo too – at a restaurant last night, I had white cheddar biscuits with ham and apple butter. So good!

39 lauren March 10, 2011 at 4:40 pm

i got the salted caramel square and it was SO good. My two co-workers got the carrot cake cupcake per recommendation by the barista, and the other got the birthday cake cake pop. you really cant go wrong!

40 Lisa (bakebikeblog) March 10, 2011 at 4:52 pm

oooh I think it actually looks pretty tasty!

41 Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather March 10, 2011 at 5:03 pm

That’s not strange at all! Apple and cheese are amazing together.

42 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) March 10, 2011 at 5:14 pm

We have such similar tastes in food- I would totally (and I have!) eaten something like that πŸ™‚

mm I was just thinking how I wanted to make a sandwich out of the tortillas I just bought! I will have to try this one

56 Faith @ lovelyascharged March 10, 2011 at 9:51 pm

I love raw green beans too, especially dipped in Hummus! As far as the sandwich…it actually sounds quite intriguing!

So, you’re going to have to drive to Brandon to check out Cheddar’s. Fantastic food, awesome big-azz margaritas, and unbeatable prices. Dooooo eeeeet!

57 Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen March 11, 2011 at 9:17 am

There is NOTHING weird about apples and cheese. Especially delicious pairings include brie + green apples and pink lady apples + white cheddar. Also, any tart apple + gorgonzola.
