Our Top Healthy Recipes for Apples
From apple pie recipes to apple sauce recipes, our best apple recipes.

 

Apple Cupcakes with Cinnamon-Marshmallow Frosting
Shredded apple replaces some of the oil and keeps the cake moist in these cinnamon-spiked cupcakes. There is a generous amount of fluffy marshmallow frosting to mound or pipe on top for a festive look. Be sure to frost them right after you make the frosting–it stiffens as it stands and becomes more difficult to spread……

 

Apple Puffed Oven Pancake
Apple pie spice is a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves or ginger. If you don’t have any on hand, you can substitute cinnamon and a dash of cloves in the recipe…….

 

Apple-and-Leek-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
Stuff pork tenderloin with apple and leek to take it from ordinary to elegant. Our easy method of tying the roast together keeps the filling inside while you brown and roast it. We use applejack, brandy made from apple cider, for depth of flavor in the pan sauce, but you can use 1/2 cup cider if you prefer……

Seared Flat Iron Steaks with Bagna CaudaSeared Flat Iron Steaks with Bagna Cauda

A good Flat Iron steak can be a hit or miss experience. This is based on two general principles, first is the quality of the meat, which if bad, you cannot fix, and second is the care that went into cutting the steak. Wild Idea’s Flat Iron steaks are the best quality and they are cut with specific care, giving you assured success. The recipe below for Bagna Cauda, which is an Italian dipping sauce, is terrific on meat or with grilled or blanched veggies, and crusty bread. An assortment of all makes a great party tray when entertaining. (Makes 2 entrée portions, or 6 hors d’oeuvres portions)

Steak Ingredients:

1 – 8 oz. Flat Iron Steak
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – teaspoon lemon juice
1 – teaspoon black pepper
½ – teaspoon sea salt +

Preparation:

1) Rinse steak and pat dry with paper towels.Seared Flat Iron Steaks with Bagna Cauda2

2) Mix the rest of the ingredients together and rub into the steak. Cover and allow to rest at room temperature for two hours before cooking.

3) On stove top over high heat, heat a *seasoned (*a pan that has been rubbed with oil and allowed to absorb into the pan)cast iron or heavy clad pan. Insure your exhaust fan is on high, as you will have a little smoke.

4) Shake off any excess of the seasoned oil and place steak in hot pan. Sear one and a half minutes on the first side, then turn and sear for an additional minute. Remove pan from heat and remove the steak from pan. Transfer the steak to a plate or cutting board and cover with foil. Allow steak to rest for 5 minutes before cutting.

5) Slice, plate, and drizzle or serve with Bagna Cauda.

Creamy Bagna Cauda (makes about 1 cup)

This sauce can be made with a combination of butter & olive oil or one or the other. The garlic-flavored milk can be omitted if you do not want a creamy texture. I prefer a combination of both butter & oil, and do add a little of the milk as it helps to keep the dipping sauce from separating, which is normal.

Ingredients:

1/3 – cup milk
4 – good sized garlic cloves, peeled
½ – cup cilantro or parsley
5 – anchovy fillets
4 – tablespoons each, hot melted butter & hot olive oil
1½ – tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 – teaspoon black pepper

Preparation:

1) In a double broiler over medium high heat, bring milk and garlic cloves to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and allow to steep for half an hour. Shut heat off and leave the garlic in the milk for two hours.

2) Remove the garlic cloves from the milk and place in a blender or food processor, along with the herbs, anchovy fillets, butter, oil, and lemon juice. Pulse puree to incorporate. Add 2 tablespoons of the garlic milk and pulse puree a second time.

3) Season to taste and reheat.
