This delicious grilled oatmeal apple crisp is sure to impress the family. Served warm, and topped with porter toffee sauce and ice cream, it's the best apple crisp you've ever tasted! The thick caramel sauce adds a delicious fall flare to this classic dessert.
In a large bowl combine apples, granulated sugar, tapioca, lemon juice, apple pie spice, and salt. Transfer apple mixture to an 8x8x1-3/4-inch disposable foil pan or metal pan.*
For topping, in a medium bowl combine oats, brown sugar, and flour. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle oat mixture evenly over apple mixture. Cover pan tightly with foil.
For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat over center of grill. Place crisp in pan on grill rack in center of grill. Cover and grill for 15 minutes. Uncover pan. Cover grill and grill about 30 minutes more or until apple mixture is bubbly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Place crisp in pan on grill rack. Grill as directed.)
Remove crisp from grill; cool slightly. Serve warm with Porter-Toffee Sauce and, if desired, ice cream.
A metal pan may get some minor burning from the grill.
