How was everyone’s Thanksgiving weekend?
J and I had a great time in Maryland celebrating with his family.
In his family they have a tradition of dressing up like different people from the day – pilgrims, Indians, even then turkey! They even hand out a golden turkey! Luckily, I was the recipient of the Golden Turkey this year. I also got the role as the male pilgrim which was fun too! I pull off men’s so well. HA!
Each of us prepared a holiday themed apple dish, and, as promised, here is my recipe!
I wanted to do something a little outside the box and prepared a savory apple.
This dish is the perfect holiday appetizer and gives you all the feels of the fall and winter.
With the prep done in less than 20 minutes + a 40-minute cook time, you can make a gourmet style starter in no time.
Take some apples of your choice (I like the caramelly – cinnamon spiced apples of Autumn Glory), simply core and scoop out the insides and replace with the toppings of your choice.
I cooked down some Italian sausage with leftover pieces from the apples, fresh herbs, cranberry and pecans.
You could make it sweet by stuffing with brown sugar and crumb mixture or continue down the savory route, but perhaps with ham or turkey?
This dish has a super WOW factor when you see them – the apples look cute all stuffed up and your guests will DEF come back for seconds.
Get ready to continue to the holiday season!
