In the midst of the most wonderful time of the year, we know you’re pulling out your great-grandmother’s famous eggnog recipe and all your other sought-after recipes. However, this is also a great time to try some new recipes (and perfect them before the in-laws come into town!). Here are some innovative ways to incorporate apples into each part of your holiday meal!
Drink: Apple Cider
What’s a holiday without some warm apple cider? There are so many ways to prepare homemade apple cider, but if you want something easy yet delicious, heat up some store-bought apple cider on the stovetop! You can add any spices you want, but it’s truly so much better than straight out of the bottle.
Appetizer: Apple Baked Brie
This one is for the charcuterie people out there! We all know a little apple slice with fancy cheese, crackers, and wine is an unbeatable combo, so this apple-pecan baked brie recipe is a need for an appetizer! This simple recipe is sure to win hearts and minimize cooking stress.
Main Course: Pulled Pork and Apple Slaw
Some people may think apples are only used in sweet recipes, but we are here to prove them wrong. Apples are creatively used in so many savory recipes like this pulled pork and apple slaw. Adding a twist to a classic recipe is always a fun way to spice things up! And who doesn’t love apples?
Dessert: Apple Cobbler
There’s apple pie, apple crisp, and apple cake, so why not apple cobbler! A warm piece of apple cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream is a holiday classic. Presentation doesn’t necessarily matter with this one, but you could always add some caramel drizzle and whipped cream for a little something extra!
