Looking for savoury ways to enjoy apples? I’ve collected 8 delicious, savoury apple recipes, lovely for year-round cooking, but especially nice in the Fall.
I went apple picking last weekend and came home with a lot of beautiful, fresh Fall apples. I picked a variety of apples, so I had the perfect apple whether I was eating out of hand, baking a sweet apple recipe or for savoury apple dishes.
Yes! Apples are perfect when used in savoury dishes, too and to prove it, I’ve collected 8 of my favourite ways to use apples beyond sweet dishes.
1. Pork Chops with Apples
Pork with apples is always a winning combination. Here they are paired with thick pork chops, where they are served with a quick and easy cider pan sauce.
2. Sausage and Apple Dutch Baby
You might think of Dutch Babies as sweet treats, but they are also super easy and delicious when given a savoury spin. Here it is combined with sausage and apples. A great brunch dish!
3. Aged Cheddar and Apple Focaccia
Apple and cheddar are another classic pairing. This focaccia is a wonderful appetizer and the perfect thing to bake up to enjoy with a glass of wine.
4. Chicken with Leek and Apples
If you are looking to bring some apples to your main course, this easy chicken dish is a great dish. The combination of flavours is fabulous.
5. Fall Kale and Apple Salad
This Fall salad combines apples with kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts and dried cranberries and tops it off with a homemade, creamy poppy seed dressing.
6. Turkey, Apple, Bacon and Cheddar Open-Faced Sandwiches
This easy open-faced sandwich makes a great lunch or light-dinner sandwich and is a great use for all that left-over Thanksgiving turkey.
7. Turkey, Apple Curry Pot Pie
Apples pair beautifully with curry flavours and here they are combined into a pot pie with turkey (or use chicken, if you prefer).
8. Apple Pulled Pork
Classic pulled pork gets a hit of apple, for a great Fall twist. This is an easy way to feed a crowd and great for Football weekends.
