The apples do keep it moist and just melt away in the meat, leaving a bit of sweet fruitiness. I would prefer a mixture of meats, say, pork and turkey, maybe some ground veal, in this, but for a single-meat one, it's pretty good. I baked in a small loaf pan, and two large slices of bacon were more than enough on the top. I don't keep apple jelly, but used red chile marmalade as a glaze, which was the perfect choice. I would also add more chili powder OR some ground dried red chile (chipotle, maybe) next time. Had it with baked sweet potatoes and green beans, a satisfying meal.

DELICIOUS ~ nice and moist inside! Made exactly as written. I was so afraid the bacon would shrink and slide away that I put a cazillion toothpicks in to hold it in place! LOL ~ Made for Spring Photo Tag 2012.
