Best Apple Recipes for Fall

Hi friends!  We were lucky this year to have an abundance of apples from our apple trees.  Based on how many apples we have this year, I have been researching and testing dozens of recipes (including some of my own).  Today, I am sharing what I believe to be some of the Best Apple Recipes for Fall.

Our trees (shown here) are not as mature as so many of our neighbor’s trees, so we are overwhelmed with the number of apples here on our street.  Our sweet neighbor’s beg us to take as many apples as we can carry so this post is partly for them!

Typically, apples are used for dessert but there are so also many great ways to use apples for breakfast, lunch, salads, and entrees.  Based on that, I am sharing recipes for all times of the day!

Best Apple Recipes for Fall – Lunch

Chicken Salad is one of my favorite things to eat for lunch.  The crunch of the candied walnuts in this Chicken Salad Sandwich is perfection!  This would be great either served over lettuce or on a fresh Brioche Bun.

These easy and gorgeous Apple Galettes would be perfect for a luncheon or brunch.  The ham and gruyere cheese work so well with the apples and would be lovely served with a light arugula salad.

This is one of my absolute favorite salads!  I have used it for luncheons and dinners of all kinds.  If I do not have time to make the sweet and spicy pecans, I buy them from Trader Joe’s and they work perfectly.  I usually chop my apple slices a little smaller, but either way, this salad is always a winner!

Best Apple Recipes for Fall – Dinner

The combination of apples, rosemary, and cheese are divine which is why this one is a go-to for me.  If you don’t have the time to make the focaccia from scratch, you can easily use a pre-made flatbread or focaccia.  I have also used pears instead of apples for this and ALWAYS use fresh rosemary from my garden.

I was attracted to this recipe for  One Pan Pork Chops with Apples and Onions because I could prepare and cook the whole entree in one pan.  Momma doesn’t like doing dishes.  The combination of the apples and onions and fresh herbs make this dish!

If you are interested in keeping your kiddos home for dinner (mine are teenagers so they are gone so much!), pop these biscuits and in the oven and, rest assured, they will stay home for dinner! The combination of the apple, bacon, cheese, and rosemary really put these biscuits over the top!

This delightful Rustic French Apple Tart is super simple to make and is such an elegant spin on a traditional apple pie.  If your family loves apple pie, then you should certainly give this one a whirl.  I serve this with Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream and it is amazing!Best Fall Recipes for Fall - Desert - Home with Holliday

Who doesn’t love a good lemon bar?!  These Apple Pie Bars are to die for (and this actually in the name of the recipe).  The crust for this recipe is so dreamy and soft and would make any guest fall over.  They might not want to leave!

Here are a lot of the tools I use to prepare these recipes (click on the images to shop them).  I also included a few nice cookbooks that feature recipes for apples.  We have so many apples that it is a challenge to figure out how to use them all.  If you are not growing your apples, buying them in bulk is a great way to save money as they are easily freezable.
