One of my favorite fall childhood memories was going apple picking with my family at nearby Eckert’s Farm. I’ve thought about going back again, especially now that I know you can bring your dog with your into the apple orchards. But I’ve hesitated since I’m not much of a dessert eater and so many of the recipes I find for apples are pie, cobbler or apple crisp.
Looking back, I have no idea what my mom did with all of those apples. There were 6 of us picking apples, and I don’t recall her having many apple recipes.
While I have a few go-to recipes which include apples, I spent some time searching through apple recipes to see what I could find that isn’t dessert, muffins, applesauce or apple butter. While these recipes are certainly tasty, I’m more of a savory foodie and can only eat so much applesauce.

I love this list, and the recipes look delicious! We just picked a ton of apples this morning, so now I have some ideas…

i love the classic apple and peanut butter combination!! i also love baked apples with cinnamon and raisins, but i suppose that’s more dessert-ish 🙂 my mom chops up apples to put in chicken salad which is SO good!!
My whole family loves apples its one of our favorite things about fall but we get tired of just dessert recipes to. The chicken salad and brussel sprout recipe is on my to make list. Our favorite is a caramel apple pork shop recipe.
Those beans!!!! I feel like I’m having an epiphany over here! Thanks for sharing – love using apples in savoury food 🙂
Thanks for sharing. A lot of these look good, especially the stuffing!

Great roundup, thanks for sharing with hearth and soul blog hop. pinning.
Great roundup! You’re right, most apple recipes that you find are for desserts. Delicious, yes but maybe not so good for you. If you are watching your waistline that doesn’t mean you can’t whip up a great apple recipe!
I just checked out your website and if I lived near you I would definitely come check it out and try some of those homemade donuts (plus pick some fruit)!
Love this line up of apple recipes. They all look so delicious! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Teach Me Tuesday Linky Party.

There are SO many great ways to use apples…I love that you shared this roundup with last week’s Foodie Fridays! I make a butternut squash and apple soup that my family loves, and I love to put them in chicken salad too! I need to check out those recipes! I am a bit embarrassed to admit I am behind making my rounds from last week, but I had a rough week. So sorry! I hope you will join us again this week!
I will be sharing this on Tasty Tuesdays Linkup tomorrow
Those meatballs look so good! Thanks for linking up to the Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party at Creative K Kids. I have pinned this post to the Tasty Tuesdays Linky Party.
Oh, thank you! The pork and apple meatballs sound divine. (Now I’m craving them… and it’s only breakfast time. )
I’ve been wanting to make them too. If you try them, come tell me what you think!
yum! We like to make fried (more like sauted) apples and onions. We learned if from reading Farmer Boy from Little House on the Prairie. Thanks for sharing with us at Simple Lives Thursday; hope to see you again this week.
Thanks for sharing our recipe!
