  1. I enjoyed these but the kids did not and DH just liked these. I may do this again for myself without the milk mixture, just caramalized apple. Served with hash browns for dinner. Thanks for posting.
  2. This is a nice combination - I like the canadian bacon and apple combination. I took some liberties with the recipe - I used a bagel instead of an English muffin and milk instead of half and half. I also added the sugar, mustard and milk to the apple onion mixture till it all kind of glazed. It is a good idea to watch how much sugar you put on it, to make sure it matches how rich you want it - I normally like my apples sweet, but I think I added a bit too much sugar for this dish. I found it a bit too rich and heavy for breakfast - next time it will be lunch! Thanks for sharing!
  3. This was great. Had all the flavors sweet from the apple and sugar, Tart from the apple, and a little kick from the mustard. I did find it a little sweet though I will use less sugar the next time. This was also very quick and easy to make, could have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's really quite filling. Made for ZWT III.
