Crumbly Apple Cranberry Casserole

Welcome to my very last recipe of #AppleWeek 2018! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed bombarding our feed with brand spanking new apple recipes. It has been one delicious week, to say the least.

If you happened to miss my first three recipes in #AppleWeek, I’ll list them here for you:

My very last addition to #AppleWeek 2018 is Crumbly Apple Cranberry Casserole! Yes, a fruity casserole! Now before I get emails telling me casseroles have to have cheese…I would agree but to be honest I’m not really a conformist.

When looking at different fruity recipes I kept seeing a southern holiday and potluck favorite that was referred to as a “casserole”. In the south, they know their casseroles and potluck recipes, who am I to disagree.

The recipes that I adapted my version from ranged vastly. I finally settled on what I knew my family would enjoy and went with what became Crumbly Apple Cranberry Casserole, and my kids went nuts over it, so I think I did well.

In my version, I combined both fresh apples, canned apple pie filling, canned cranberry sauce, and fresh cranberries. The variety of textures is great, and there’s a nice sauciness from the canned fruits.

As for the crumbly part, it is a mixture of butter, vanilla, oats and brown sugar. When baked it adds just the right crispness to this dish. I’ve read that many serve this alongside their holiday ham or turkey.

Personally, we enjoyed it more as a dessert than a side dish. BONUS, if you eat it as dessert you can obviously add ice cream or whipped cream on top.

Some of the delicious ingredients and kitchen implements I used were provided as part of #AppleWeek. Thanks to Rodelle Vanilla, Swiss Diamond and Flavahan’s Irish Oatmeal. Combined with the fruity ingredients, they each helped me create a delicious finale to #AppleWeek 2018.

Some tips for making Crumbly Apple Cranberry Casserole:

  • Whole Cranberry Sauce or Jellied Cranberry Sauce will work.
  • I used frozen cranberries, fresh is great too.
  • Use 2 knives or a pastry cutter to combine the topping ingredients.
  • Cut the canned apple pie filling pieces into smaller chunks.
