Makes: 4 servings
Prep 20 mins Grill 30 mins to 40 mins
Gorgonzola-and-Walnut-Stuffed Apples
Ingredients
  • 4  medium cooking apples, such as Granny Smith or Jonathan
  • 1/4  cup  crumbled Gorgonzola, Stilton, or Roquefort cheese
  • 1/4  cup  chopped walnuts
  • 2  tablespoons  butter or margarine, melted
  • 4  teaspoons  honey
  •  Honey
Directions

1. Core apples almost to the bottom, leaving approximately 1/2 inch. Remove 1 inch of peel from the top of each apple.

2. In a small bowl stir together Gorgonzola, walnuts, and melted butter. Fill each cored apple three-fourths full. Drizzle 1 teaspoon honey into each. Add remaining filling to apples. Place apples in a disposable foil pan.

3. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat over center of grill. Place apples on rack in the center of the grill. Cover; grill for 30 to 40 minutes or until tender. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust grill for indirect grilling. Place apples on grill rack. Grill as above.)

4. Drizzle each serving with additional honey; serve warm.
