Ever Tried Cinnamon Apple Toast?

I mentioned here that I may be getting sixty pounds of apples in my co-op order this week. (UPDATE!!! Click here to see if the apples all came in or not!)  If they all actually come in, I have no doubt that they will all get eaten. The kids love snacking on apples…they are SO nice to have on hand! The apples I mean. Well actually, the kids are pretty nice to have on hand too.

I ordered twenty pounds each of Gala (my favorite!), Yellow Delicious and Spartan. I’ve never even heard of Spartan apples before. Have you? Are they good? I ordered them because they were $11 for 20 pounds!!! I can’t wait to try them (if they come in)!

Here’s a very simple apple idea we’ll be snacking on with all of our apples:

Cinnamon Apple ToastYum

Your favorite whole grain bread (I use this homemade Honey Whole Wheat Bread…or Whole Wheat Sourdough if I have it made.)
Apples, sliced thinly

Place slices of bread on a baking pan. Butter each slice. Lay three or four apple slices on each piece of bread. Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Broil Cinnamon Apple Toast in the oven for 2-3 minutes.

So simple, your bigger kids can help you or make these themselves!

Other ways to eat apples…

What are your favorite ways to eat apples? If you have one, feel free to leave a recipe link in your comment!   Really, because sixty pounds of apples? I might need to get creative!

    Apples are so much fun! I love Gala too! My cousins make a dip for apple slices that I LOVE. It is so simple and yummy. Just blend softened cream cheese with brown sugar to taste. I never measure, but I think I use about a spoonful of brown sugar to an ounce of cream cheese.

    Spartans – This is a cross between the McIntosh and Pippin apples. It’s a good all-purpose apple.
    Pippin apple = Newtown Pippin apple – This is a firm, tart apple that’s great for pies, baking, and applesauce.
    McIntosh apple – These soft apples are great for snacking or for making applesauce, but don’t bake them or put them in pies.
    (That’s from Cook’s Thesaurus/Switcheroo.com)

    Sounds like they’re pretty good!

    That looks great!

    I just bought 40# of apples this weekend (organic apples for 70 cents a pound? Wahoo!). I’m going to peel and slice them all up, cook until just soft in a little coconut oil, and freeze. Easy for little ones to chew up and digest.

    I’ll have to try it. Sounds good. I have a question – in the honey bagel recipe it calls for yeast. Is it rapid yeast, or just regular yeast?? I made them this weekend and they didn’t really rise much. Could you let me know?! Thanks!

    Just a quick questions===I don’t understand when you say you aren’t sure if your apples will all come in???? If you paid for them, what am I missing? Thanks!

    When I order from my food co-op, Azure Standard…I never really know which items will come in and which items they are out of until I pick up my order. They do not charge my credit card until after they fill my order, so I won’t be charged for items I don’t receive.

    Good question. That doesn’t really make sense unless you know how Azure works!

    We got a ton of free apples last year (okay, slightly less than 2000#)… My kids helped chop a lot of them up for apple sauce… Nesco roaster size batch which yielded ~7 quarts canned?? The rest we either sliced or chopped up and put in the freezer for “instant” apple sauce or crisp, adding to smoothies, etc. (I’m thankful for the freezer idea from my beloved MIL with her own small orchard!)

    This last week my grocery had jonathans on sale ($1.13/3#), so I brought home 15# and had some kiddos chop up 6# for future applesauce (Thanksgiving likely) I think they can eat the rest fresh since there’s only 6# remaining.

    Oh, and key to my happy apple preserving is that I do NOT peel them. So they have to chop pretty small pieces, but Y>A>Y> for no peeling!

    Another variation to the cinnamon apple toast is to spread toast with peanut butter before topping with apple slices and cinnamon.

    We like apples added to overnight french toast. Just put a layer of sliced apples in between the layers of bread. yum.

    Mmmmmmmmmm…this sounds just like something I made up when I was a kid. I even wrote out the ‘recipe’ and put it in my own little cookbook, but it has never been published — until now, that is!! :)

    We love apples. Over in Japan, they had HUGE apples – Fuji kind. They taste different than the ones you can buy here though. :(Need to make up some apple dishes. Thanks for the links. :D

    I LOVE to add cut up apples in a homemade muesli. We use apples, uncooked rolled oats, slivered almonds, dried cranberries and milk. MMmmm…think I’ll have it for breakfast tomorrow.

    I can’t wait to try this! It looks wonderful and would make a great after school snack – my boys are always come home like a pack of hungry wolves! I do have an apple crisp recipe that I am happy to share. It’s grain-free, uses almond flour, and is so delicious! Here it is incase you’d like to give it a try: http://www.facebook.com/notes/the-nourishing-home/hot-apple-crisp/196150753732792
    Appreciate all of your wonderful recipes! Blessings, Kelly
