Apple-Garlic Loaves

Ingredients
3
medium Granny Smith apples (about 1 lb.), cored
1
tablespoon butter
4
large cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1/2
cup quick-cooking or regular rolled oats
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1
tablespoon lemon juice
2
20 ounce loaves purchased ciabatta bread or other crusty bread
3
tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  1. Thinly slice one and a half of the apples; coarsely chop remaining apples. In a large skillet melt the 1 tablespoon butter. Add apples, garlic, and oats. Cook over medium heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until apples start to soften, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in brown sugar and lemon juice. Use immediately to top bread. Or transfer to a medium bowl; cover and chill up to 24 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Place loaves on a large baking sheet.* Brush tops of loaves with melted butter. Spoon half the apple mixture onto each loaf, pressing mixture in slightly. Bake, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until warmed through. Transfer to a cutting surface. Slice carefully to avoid dislodging apples. Makes 24 servings.
