So I’m very late in posting this recipe for Cheesy Apples, but I promise you, you need to bookmark this and save it for later. You won’t regret it.
At first, the idea of cheesy apples sounds… odd, I’ll give you that. But I guarantee that if you’ll try it, you will find the perfect meal for this to become a staple of, and you’ll never want to forget it. For me, growing up this was a part of Christmas Day Brunch – served alongside eggs, bacon and Mom’s famous tea ring – so a fancy breakfast dish. It also goes very well with pork, so I’ve served it at dinner with pork loin. I also like it with ham – there is something about the sweet with the salty that makes it deliciousness pop! Once you have it, you’ll wonder why I haven’t suggested it for dessert with a scoop of ice cream on top, and far be it from me to judge how YOU decide to serve it. As long as you do that – serve it.
2 cans sliced apples* (well drained)
8 oz. Velveeta cheese (grated)
3/4 c. all purpose flour
3/4 c. sugar
1 stick butter – melted
Mix cheese and butter; add sugar and flour. Spoon over apples that have been spread into a 9×13 baking dish. Cook uncovered on 350 until brown and bubbly.
*A note about the apples – this will be the hardest part of this recipe – finding the appropriate apples. White House brand works really well, but they aren’t always available. You need canned apples that are not “fried” or in syrup. There is an alternate brand (Comstock, I believe) I’ve used several times that I’ve found in baking / pie section of the grocery store instead of the canned fruit section. The apples should be firm slices – not mush – a consistency similar to a canned pear.
Also, Velveeta cheese melts more smoothly than other cheeses, so be sure to use this. In recent years I’ve been able to find this pre-grated, which makes this recipe a breeze to make.
