Laura's Story

I got this recipe from a friend who brought it to a "pot-luck" dinner. It was a popular dish.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
I can sum up the combination of these ingredients in one word: tasty! The crunchiness of the oats and nuts adds great texture to the already flavorful dish.  And if cranberries are out of season, no problem! Frozen berries will work well too..


3 c
apples, peeled and chopped
2 c
raw cranberries
1 1/4 c
1 1/2 c
quick oatmeal (uncooked)
1/2 c
brown sugar
1/3 c
1/2 c
pecans, chopped
1/2 c
margarine or butter, melted

Directions Step-By-Step

In a 2-quart casserole that has been sprayed with cooking spray, combine apples, cranberries and sugar. Mix oats, brown sugar, flour, pecans and melted butter in bowl and place on top of apple/cranberry mix. Bake in 350 degree oven for about one hour or until bubbly and brown. Serve hot. Good with chicken, turkey, or ham

    Which kind of apples work best with it?

    Donna, It depends on the sweetness that you like in apples. Gala apples have worked well for me because of the sweetness. Granny Smith apples work well for a more tart taste and also works well with the sugars. Hope you enjoy the casserole.

    Oh god this sounds absolutely sinful!!! I'm a huge fan of apples and cranberries this time of year, and use them alot in deserts and even normal evening main dish dinners (Caramel Apple Pork Chops is one of my favorite autumn dishes!!!)....Might have to throw this into the meal planner for this month!
