Oven Roasted Cheese & Apples #HolidayAppetizers

Pin It Now!
One of the things that I love about the holidays.....appetizers! Welcome to Holiday Appetizers Week! This week I am featuring a week of yummy appetizers...along with a group of blogging friends who are also sharing delicious appetizer recipes! Oh how I love appetizers! I could eat them every day instead of meals. And when I find a great appetizer recipe...I love making it and sharing it with friends! This one, which features one of the Canadian Cheese Grand Prix winners, is not only delightfully easy for the  host.....it is also melt-in-your-mouth good! The sweetness of the apples taste wonderful with the cheese and nuts, and everything has been caramelized a bit with butter & honey.

This recipe was developed using Latin Foods Queso Fresco cheese, this year's Grand Prix winner in the "Fresh Cheese with Grilling Properties" category and is made right here in Alberta. It is very tasty and makes this appetizer sing with deliciousness! What's even more....it is super simple for any busy hostess to prepare...and I love that!

Oven Roasted Cheese & Apples featuring Queso Fresco Cheese

Preparation: 5 minutes
Cooking: 15 to 20 minutes
Serves: 6 to 8

Ingredients:
2 apples, sliced into small wedges
1 tbsp. butter, melted
1 tbsp. honey
1 tsp. fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup nuts {I used walnuts}
8 oz. Latin Foods Queso Fresco Cheese {Superstore}
Freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 450.

Directions:
In an oven safe medium dish, mix apples, butter, honey, rosemary and nuts. Sprinkle with fresh ground pepper.
 2. Place cheese over apple mixture.
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until hot and golden brown. Place the dish on the table and enjoy while hot!

We enjoyed it by scooping apple and cheese chunks with a forks. Very informal, but so SO good!
Canadian cheese makes such a great gift, and pairing it with a bottle of wine and a great cheese recipe such as this Canadian Grand Prix winner is a sure way to knock off your family's or guest's socks off!

Now don't forgot to hop on over and see what my blogging friends have been whipping up in their kitchens to share with you as part of our #HolidayAppetizers Week!


With special thanks to Dairy Farmers of Canada for supplying me with this delicious recipe and the ingredients to make this amazing appetizer featuring Canadian cheese made from 100% Canadian Milk. It was fabulous!
