Apple-Garlic Loaves

Makes: 24 servings
Prep 20 mins Bake 375°F 10 mins
Apple-Garlic Loaves
  • 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

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.

  • If the loaves do not have flat tops, slice off the rounded portions to make flat surfaces.
