Baked Apples

P1010006aP1010012bP1010013bP1010005b


With cooler temps of fall lingering in the air, my appetite for comfort foods is slowly setting in.  The other morning I decided to give my try at baking up some of the Granny Smith apples that were in the fridge.  A simple topping of some leftover turkey sausages mixed with grated cheddar cheese, a smidge of maple syrup and Dijon mustard and about 2 Tblsp of melted butter – mix it all up and place over the halved apples (seeds and core removed first).  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about an hour – or until the apples are nice and soft.  Allow to cool and enjoy.
I found these beautiful bowls at



and love them!  They are a perfect color for fall and the quality is very nice.  I think I need to add some more in different colors!

I would have never thought of putting sausage on an apple. What made you think of that?

Yummmm....
In my family, we love GS apples, sausage, maple syrup, cheese and dijon mustard (not necessarily in that order).
So, we may be trying this soon.

Yummmm...I know exactly what you mean! The cooler fall air is making me lust after comfort food too! We've been indulging in autumnal pursuits around our home, and cooking and eating has been a huge part of the joy of it! These apples look delicious, and those bowls are just as enticing! Warm hugs from the UK, Tania ♥
