Apple-Cheddar Turnovers

Bread is the envelope for an oven-baked apple-cheddar “turnover” – a perfect any time snack!

Ingredients

  • 6 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 small Gala apple, finely diced
  • A few grates of fresh nutmeg
  • Salt
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Canola cooking spray

Preparation

Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.


Run a rolling pin over the slices of bread to make them thinner.

Season the apples with nutmeg and salt, then dress with the lemon juice. Combine with the cheese.


In a small bowl, combine the Dijon mustard and the maple syrup. Spread the mixture on each slice of bread.

Place some of the apple-cheese mixture over each slice of bread on top of the mustard-syrup. Fold the corners of the bread together to create a triangle. Squeeze the sides together to ensure that they are well-sealed.


Arrange the turnovers on a rack set on top of a baking sheet and spray lightly with canola oil. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
