Apple Cheddar Bacon Appetizers


  • 2 tart apples
  • 8 oz sharp cheddar cheese (such as Conebella Farm or September Farms)
  • 4 slices bacon
  • Crackers, such as Triscuits, Breton or Pepperidge Farm

To make this recipe, first preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Use a firm, somewhat tart apple like Granny smith, Pink Lady® or Stayman. Cut it thin slices and arrange it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Next, thinly slice some sharp cheddar cheese. Place in the preheated oven and cook 6-9 minutes until the cheese is melted.  Meanwhile, cook three to four slices of bacon on a frying pan on medium heat until it reaches your desired level of crispiness. Remove from heat and place on a paper towel to absorb the grease. Next, remove the cheesy apple slices from the oven. Crumble the bacon on top of the apple slices. Return to oven for another one to two minutes. Then remove from oven and serve immediately on top of crackers like Triscuits or any of the amazing crackers we sell in our market.
