Produce Sale: Baked Breakfast Apples

Produce Sale is an ongoing series.  What happens is I go to the grocery store or the farmer’s market and find vegetables or fruit that are on sale or super cheap and regardless of whether I have ever cooked with it before, I buy it and find a recipe for it.

Target had Fuji apples on sale.  I like apples, why not?  And these were super delicious and easy to make.  I will be having another one some time this week.

The Hunger Games: Mellark’s Apple and Goat Cheese Tarts

This is an ongoing series of food related to The Hunger Games, here are the links to the other recipes- Peeta’s raisin nut bread, the bakery bread Katniss and Gale ate in the woods, the Capitol pancakes, lunch with Cinna (chicken in orange sauce), District 11 bread, Goose Liver and Puffy Bread, Lamb Stew and Dried Plums, cake on fire, hot chocolate,
“We make a goat cheese and apple tart at the bakery,” he (Peeta) says.

“Bet that’s expensive,” I say.

“Too expensive for my family to eat.  Unless it’s gone very stale.  Of course, practically everything we eat is stale,” says Peeta, pulling the sleeping bag up around him.  In less than a minute, he’s snoring.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, Katniss, p 309
