10.07.15Apple Recipe Round-up

Apple nachos

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been spending a lot of my down time researching fall recipes. I love cooking and incorporating seasonal flavors into our meals. Last weekend, we went on an adventure an hour north of the city to the cutest apple orchard and came home with dozens of delicious apples. With so many apples on my hands, I’ve been narrowing my recipe research to anything that incorporates the fruit. I’ve tried a few and have many more to attempt! Here’s my round-up of apple recipes with some notes by the ones I’ve made already.

  1. Chicken Salad with Toasted Cashews and Apples
    I changed up the dressing for my version. I used one 5 oz. container of Chobani nonfat plain Greek yogurt, 1/4 cup of honey, 1 T of apple cider vinegar, and salt and pepper. No mayo for us! I also baked my seasoned chicken, then shredded it. Finally, I topped little spoonfuls of the mixture on Ritz baked crackers. So delicious!
  2. Apple Nachos
    I added a few peanut butter chips, too!
  3. Applesauce
    I haven’t made this one yet, but will probably skip the added sugar. No need!
  4. Skinny Butternut Squash and Apple Soup
    I’m not a big soup person, but this one really caught my eye and sounds delicious! I think I will be trying it this weekend.
  5. Roasted Pork Tenderloin with Apples
    I love her tip about not overcooking – there’s nothing worse than dry meat!
  6. Turkey, Apple, Brie Panini
    This is one of my favorite sandwich combinations – but I skip the mayo/dressing.
  7. Carmel Apple Pie Bar
    Had to include an extra sweet treat :).

I’m also thinking of grating some apple into our cinnamon waffles for breakfast this weekend. What are your favorite apple recipes? I have so many apples to use up!
