Slow Cooked Festive Stuffed Apples

Stuffed Apples

I had never baked apples in the slow cooker before, but they are amazing, holding together really well as long as you remember to run your knife around the middle to give them a little expansion room or they might explode!  This recipe was inspired by a savoury baked apple recipe I saw in a magazine.

  2. Core the apples with a small sharp knife and run the knife around the middle of the apple to pierce the peel.
  3. Fill the cavities in the apples with haggis and make the remaining haggis into balls about the size of a walnut.

How delicious, I love the sound of savoury stuffed apples and the red cabbage and cranberry base is a great combination. I am not sure I have ever tried haggis, being a southerner, but it will definitely have to be tried. Thanks for your great Christmas Slow Cooked Challenge entry! šŸ™‚

Wow. I love these. I’d never thought to do apples in the sc either but they look great. I saw a stuffed onion recipe the other day which I bet would also work,

This sound very interesting. Wonder if it would work as well with peppers instead of the apples. Or even tomatoes /marrows. I am not a fan of haggis but I think a savoury mince stuffing would work just as well. Pinned to try!

I don’t think I’ve ever had haggis but these stuffed apples look really delicious and I love red cabbage:-)

I’ve never tried apples in a slow cooker and I’ve never stuffed them with haggis but this is just a dream combo for me. I’ve tried apples in a chicken brick and that was good so I’d imagine that this is even better. I’ve definitely got to get my sadly neglected slow cooker back into service.

I absolutely love that combo of sweet and savoury! And slow cooker ideas always so welcome!
