Number of Servings: 4


    2 apples
    1 tablespoon margarine
    1/2 cup onion, chopped
    1/2 pound ground pork
    1/4 tsp lite salt
    1/4 tsp thyme
    1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
    1 tsp cider vinegar
    1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
    1/3 cup reduced sodium chicken broth


Cut apples in half horizontally. Using a melon baller or small spoon, remove core and inner flesh until you are left with a wall about 1/2" thick. Chop and set aside 1/2 cup of inner flesh.

Set apples, hollow side up, into a baking dish just big enough to leave about an inch of space around each apple.

In medium to large pan, saute onions in margarine until slightly tender. Add thyme, pepper, and salt. Saute another minute. Add pork, the reserved 1/2 cup apple flesh, and vinegar. Saute until pork is just shy of done and apple flesh is tender.

Remove from heat. Let cool a minute or two then stir in 1/4 cup of the cheese.

Scoop pan mixture evenly into the four hollowed out apple halves. Top with remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Pour the chicken broth into the bottom of the pan.

Bake about 25 minutes until cheese on top is lightly browned and apples are tender..

Serve as soon as possible.

    The cider vinegar really added some nice aroma, and adding just a bit of *very* sharp Cheddar cheese extended the flavor, without overloading the calories. I added some sage I had on hand, and next time will try cayenne: a recipe worth re- and re-making, and playing with! Thank you! - 10/1/10

    This was FANTASTIC. Really, really, REALLY good. Could even use more of the apple and serve in tortillas if you want to change it up a bit! - 11/3/17
