Savory Baked Apples

13 Apr

Here’s a tasty idea I found on Cooking Light…along the lines of my recent post on Apple Pie In An Apple. This could be easily adapted for Vegetarians or Vegans too. Click on this link for details.

Other combinations or substitutions I might try are the following:

  • Granny Smith Apples
  • Pecans
  • Almonds
  • Golden Raisins
  • Dried Apricots
  • Sundried Tomatoes
  • Leeks
  • Shallots
  • Spinach
  • Fennel
  • Celery
  • Fontina or Cheddar Cheese (how can you can wrong?)
  • Curry Powder
  • Garam Masala (do you have this spice blend in your pantry yet? It’s so versatile)
  • Thyme
  • Couscous (White, Red or Tricolor)
  • Bulgur Wheat
  • Farro
  • Bread Crumbs (for topping)

By changing up the flavors, you’ll be able to serve this for many occasions as a main course, or for a side dish I think that half an apple per person would be adequate (cut in half before stuffing). This could also be a good dish for entertaining, since you could easily make the stuffing a day or two ahead. It would be delicious with a Pork Roast or any poultry!
