Very good! Served this with squash soup for a nice lunch. I did not have parsley so instead put in a sprinkle of crushed fennel seeds. My apples were not tender in 20 minutes more like 30. Thank you Lori for sharing. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday game.
Made these with one apple (didn't realize DH took the apples in his lunch) so we each had 1 half. I used dried parsley and about 1/2 the amount of onions (not DH's fav) but otherwise followed the recipe. These apples had a great flavor with the savory toppings. Made for Everyday Holiday.
