It’s that time of year when the weather is crisp and so are the apples. My neighbors brought me a big bag of them last week and I’ve been enjoying them to no end. You just can’t get apples this sweet at the grocery store. And while I’ve been just eating them raw, I’ve had this nagging urge to make an apple pie. Well, this picture has just pushed that urge over the top. This is a must-try recipe.
I wrote once before about bacon apple pie, but this bacon lattice work really takes the cake…er, pie. You can find the full recipe, more photos and a great backstory over at EliCooks. I’ve been toying around with adding apple pie to my Thanksgiving menu, since for some odd reason not everyone I know LOVES pumpkin pie the way I do. But I don’t know…is it too much to have bacon cinnamon rolls for breakfast, bacon in the green beans AND bacon in the pie?
When I first saw this I thought it was a bacon pizza, I think I’m going to have to try making a bacon pizza tonight. I wonder what other toppings might be good on that…. I’ll stop drooling now.
If you cook the bacon with brown sugar, a bit of pepper, and some hotter stuff if you like, and then wrap it around an apple, it’s amazing. I like to add some cheese to the mix as well, either a nice cheddar or goats cheese.
i can’t believe i jsut made an apple pie and did not do this
