Apple Onion Casserole

Apple Onion Casserole

- By Sandra Molyneaux

Serves 6

Ingredients

8 slices bacon

2 Tb. butter

½ cup bread crumbs

1/2 tsp. salt

6 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced

8 medium onions, sliced thinly

1 cup chicken stock

Topping

3 cups bread cubes, stale bread is best

5 Tb. unsalted butter, melted

3 Tb. Parmesan cheese, grated

Procedure

1. Preheat oven to 375º F (180º C). Cook the bacon in a large skillet until crisp, set aside and pour off the fat. Crumble the bacon.

2. Add butter to the skillet and brown the bread crumbs. Add the bacon and transfer to a bowl, add the salt and set aside.

3. Layer the apples, bacon mixture and onions in an oven proof oblong baking dish, ending with onions. Pour the chicken stock over the dish. Bake covered for 45 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, in the same skillet sauté the cubed bread in the melted butter until golden.

5. Remove casserole from oven, cover casserole with bread cubes and sprinkle with cheese.

Return to oven and bake uncovered 15 minutes until golden brown and cheese is melted.

This dish goes nicely with pork or sausages as a main meat.

Feel free to vary the proportions – such as more bread crumbs or cheese, or add herbs
