Savory Baked Apples


Baked Apples remind me of growing up. My mom used to make these baked apples for dessert and I loved smelling them in the oven. I took a twist on the baked apple and made it into a delicious breakfast.

From our kitchen to yours, Dana


4 firm-tart apples, halved from stem to blossom end, and cored
5-6 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped
½ of a white onion, finely chopped (about a scant cup)
¼ cup golden raisins
Pinch of crushed red pepper (optional)
Some fresh thyme leaves, or a pinch of dried thyme
Honey to drizzle on the bakes apples (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
Place the apple halves in a baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer
In a medium mixing bowl toss the chopped bacon with the onion, raisins, crushed red pepper, and thyme
Divide the filling into the apples
The filling is loose, so pat it into a little mound on each apple
Pour a half of a cup of water around the apples, and cover the baking dish with foil
Bake for 35 minutes, or until the apples are tender
Remove the foil and return the baking dish to the oven for another 5 to 10 minutes, to let the filling brown a bit
Serve hot, drizzled with a little honey, if desired
