Have you seen this TikTok Wrap Hack before? It blew up a few weeks ago and I simply had to put my own spin on it. Elevate a basic cheese quesadilla into an elegant snack with Honeycrisp apple, caramelized onion, fontina, and chèvre. Don’t forget a drizzle of honey! That part is critical. This rich, sweet and savory wrap pairs perfectly with a Chardonnay.
This TikTok Wrap Hack Makes Layering Ingredients Easy
If you’re wondering what exactly this “hack” is and why you’d do it, let me tell you. You only need one tortilla to turn your ingredients into this perfectly melty, crispy, cheesy little wrap. It’s easy to make with no tricky burrito-style rolling or wrapping with ingredients falling out every which way.
All you have to do is slice a tortilla halfway, place your ingredients in each of the four quadrants of the circle, and fold counter clockwise. Check out the video below.
Additionally, you can finesse the arrangement of your ingredients so that the things you want to melt a lot (the cheese) get the most heat from the pan while any fresh ingredients (the apple) sit in the middle and don’t get too mushy.
Caramelized Onion, Honeycrisp Apple, Fontina, and Chevre Turn This Hack Into an Elegant Snack
Forget slapping some shredded cheddar on a tortilla and calling it a day. The old cheese quesadilla trick simply don’t do after you’ve had a grown-up version like this one with a balance of savory and sweet items.
Don’t forget a drizzle of honey before you pan fry! The sweetness of the honey ties the whole thing together.
This combo of ingredients was inspired by my apple, brie, and caramelized onion crostini. If you loved those (they are always a crowd-pleaser), you’ll be over the moon for this wrap.
The onions are caramelized with balsamic vinegar and some fresh rosemary to add depth. You could always swap the fontina for brie, or any of your favorite gooey, melty soft cheeses that are similar. The chèvre provides a little brightness to an otherwise rich wrap.
Pair Your Wrap With Chardonnay
One thing the original TikTok Wrap Hack was missing: a wine pairing. Because of all the cheesy, buttery richness going on in this wrap, Chardonnay is the perfect pairing. I personally love the Louis Jadot Macon Villages Chardonnay. A French Burgundy Chardonnay, this wine is medium bodied with balanced acidity. It is a dry wine with notes of apple, pear, citrus fruits, and very light oak.
Some people – myself included – don’t love a Chardonnay that is super full-bodided, rich, and buttery with heavy oak. This wine is definitely not that. Trust me, you’ll like this one. It’s also inexpensive at just under $14.00 a bottle.
This producer also makes one of my favorite Beaujolais wines (or favorite affordable red wines period, for the matter) for around the same price, if not less. If you end up liking this bottle, try the Louis Jadot Beaujolais-Villages next!

- 1 yellow onion
- Fontina cheese
- Chèvre cheese
- 1 Honeycrisp apple
- Honey, for drizzling
- 4 Flour tortillas
- Fresh rosemary
- Balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp butter, more for pan-frying (or use olive oil)
- 1 small garlic clove, minced
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Slice onion into long thin pieces (julienne).
- Heat 2 tbsp of butter in a pan at medium.
- Add the minced garlic.
- Add onion slices to the pan, stirring occasionally. Add salt and pepper to taste. Do not stir so frequently that the onions don’t get a chance to brown, but don’t leave them idle too long that they burn.
- Add 1 fresh rosemary sprig to the onions. Keep an eye on them and stir occasionally for about 20 minutes, or until they are fully caramelized.
- Once the onions are mostly caramelized, add about 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan. Toss the onions in the pan to evenly distribute the balsamic. Remove the rosemary sprig.
- Set caramelized onions aside to use in the wrap.
Construct the Wrap
- Slice the tortilla halfway to the center. Essentially, cut along the line of one radius of the tortilla. Refer to the video shared in the post above for more clarity.
- Add slices of fontina cheese to the bottom left quadrant of the tortilla, and chèvre cheese to the top left. These quadrants make direct contact with the pan when you fold it up.
- Place a pile of caramelized onions on the top right quadrant and a few slices of Honeycrisp apple to the bottom right. Drizzle the apples with honey.
- Fold counterclockwise starting with the apples. Refer to the video shared in the post above for more clarity.
- Heat butter or olive in a pan over medium heat.
- Once hot, add your wrap(s) to the pan and allow them to fry until browned then flip and repeat on the other side.
- Open a bottle of chilled Chardonnay, and serve!
- If you’re lucky enough to have a panini press, that would work great here instead of pan-frying.
