PS Honeycrisp apples are where it's at.

Joanna Goddard said...

Caitlin said...

This is my go-to snack. It's delish and puts me in the best mood. :)

Have ever added peanut butter to the mix, Joanna? I feel it completes the snack! Plus, crunchy peanut butter is just too good to pass up!

tiffany. said...

@kelly ...that sounds awfully YUMMY!!

xo!

Siubhan said...

Oh, and smoked cheddar!

JoL said...

Anonymous said...

My mom used to eat apple pie with a slice of cheddar cheese on top!

Tay and Teigan said...

I just had that exact same thing for lunch! Perfection!

Sarah said...

Delicious. Honeycrisp were my favourite until I tasted an Ambrosia this year [I had never heard of them previously]. It isn't even close now in terms of my favourite.

Anna said...

I'm loving this combination, myself. Macintosh are awfully good, too!... in a sandwich, with a good, sharp white cheddar and some crisp bacon.

Giulia said...

Yes, that or (for me) any pear + Fourme d'Ambert or Bleu d'Auvergne. W/either a little handful of walnuts.

Kateri said...

so true! Honey crisp apple are so good!

kathleen said...

granny smith with smoked gouda is also quite scumptious! though, honeycrisp ARE the best. natures crunchy candy!

Monica from Hola!design said...

that sounds delish! thanks for the tip, joanna!

The Dyals said...

We get some amazing Honeycrisp apples here in WA. My favorite is to pair them with a good brie, the triple creme kind that I get at whole foods that and a glass of chardonnay. I always bake at least two apple pies in the fall using only Honeycrisp; they always turn out the best.

The Goods Design said...

One of my favs!

Rhea (Greek Feaster) said...

Oooh, seconded. Love Honeycrisps and Fujis!
I'm assuming you have sampled the legenDAIRY combo of apple pie + ched :)

B. Inspired. said...

This is what I ate for dinner last night! haha! And Im loving the honeycrisps;)

Amy said...

My very favorite snack!! Sharp cheddar is a must and honey crisp apples are to dies for. I also love this combo with some wine...

Chasing Davies said...

Kellie said...

<33 honeycrisp

leilani.e said...

goodnightstars said...

i have been eating this as a snack all season!! :)

ag. said...

I've recently developed an allergy to apples and it is the WORST! Otherwise, I'd be all over a snack like this! YUM!!

Lindsay said...

If you love honeycrisps and cheddar try my fave sandwich in the fall/winter! spread whold grain dijon on 2 slices of whole grain bread. Then put a cheddar on each slice and a thin slice of honeycrips. Then grill it like a grilled cheese. The best combination of flavors!

wonderchris said...

Honeycrisp are exactly what apples should taste like!!! PERFECTION.

B. in the Know said...

Honeycrisp apples are amazing...and they come from my home right here in MN! Glad y'all get to enjoy them too :)
Much love,
B

Meg said...

ok that is wayyy too funny - that is EXACTLY what i had for lunch today!! i can't get enough of honeycrisp apples.

Acacia said...

Cheese and apples seems like such a strange combo...but I love it! This is my favorite recipe to make with apples and cheese, especially when it's on a bagel!

Joanna Goddard said...

ag, really? no way? i've never heard of an apple allergy. you poor thing!

Jillian said...

mmm smoked gouda. or feta.. or goat cheese. i love them all.

--r said...

my son and i like to dip our honeycrisps in yogurt for lunch (sam thinks everything is better with dip :)). he gets yobaby vanilla and i have lemon yoplait.

Hollie said...

I love love love apples with cheddar cheese. Green apples go great with it too!

Melissa Blake said...

Do you like taffy apples, joanna? I've been eating them like it's my job this season :)

hip hip gin gin said...

All time favorite snack and lunch option, definitely! We weren't able to find any honeycrisp this season though, so sad. The galas have been delicious but it's just not the same.

I have a fixation for aplles, but I prefer granny smith!

Honeycrisp apples are the king of the apples, and they're worth every penny!

Kristi aka Fiber Fool said...

My fav apple and cheese combo is Pink Lady with Gjetost (an amazing whey-based cheese that is slow cooked until it carmelizes)!

Alex A-G said...

honeycrisp apples are the best! another great fall treat are apple donuts, delish!

Michelle said...

If you like Honeycrisp, try my new favorite the Jonagold. To die for. The man who owned the apple orchard we picked at this year recommended them. I haven't looked back since.

ashley maureen said...

agreed. on all accounts. and please, please try cotswold cheddar (with onions and chives)... it brings a bit more savory to the sweet of the apple. nothing like it.

chopsuey said...

I just upped the ante a bit with apple pie and cheddar baked into the crust. Recipe in Martha Stewart Dec 2010. Wow!

rebecca said...

I never understood the whole cheddar cheese and apple pie thing until my great aunt cut me a slab of each one day.

Great aunts know what they're talking about.

Kathryn said...

I love apples with cheese. I even extend it to dessert and eat a slice of cheddar with my apple pie.

Plus honeycrisp are my obsession. The orchard near my university grew only those and we would pick baskets full every fall.

Julie said...

My when my husband and I were first dating he brought apples and cheese on a picnic and I had never had it before-I couldn't get enough!

Abi said...

an apple (pie) without cheese is like a hug without a squeeze! (that's what my Granddad always said!)

Ami @ beyondpeasandcarrots said...

I have been eating tons of apples and cheese too!! You are totally right, honeycrisp ARE the best (followed closely by gala).

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

Mmm toss them into a sandwich and grill and I'm in heaven

Foteini P. said...

Marissa said...

My grandpa always used to eat slices of cheddar cheese with his apple pie.

.caroline armelle. said...

Anonymous said...

randi brookman harris said...

joanna! i had THE most delish apple and cheddar and dark-leafy romaine salad with an amazing mustardy dressing at vinegar hill house last night! (i know they change their menu a lot, but in case you were thinking of an evening out in the near future. it was sublime!)

Apples and cheese are one of my favorite meals year round. I stocked up on Honeycrisps at my local cider mill and am loving them! I also love a wonderful ripe pear with some strong cheese (Danish Blue, etc.) or honey drizzled over the same cheese. This is making me very hungry!

chai am woman said...

oh my gosh, honeycrisp are seriously THE BEST! i'm going to miss them millions when they're not in season.

Kristin said...

ooh ooh yes! yum! also throw in some rye crisp crackers and you're set!

I made these apple cheddar scones from Smitten Kitchen yesterday and they were amazing.

Jaymie said...

Honeycrisp are indeed the best. And are smashing with a slice of cheddar.

mrs. t said...

Honeycrisp apples ARE the best. I was sharing one with a friend the other day and she was like "what kind of apple is this?!? it's delicious!" i told her honeycomb...haha, she corrected me :)

heidi adnum said...

Yum yum! One of my faves, too.

D said...

have you ever tried grilling?
I just got a few weeks back from a farm along the side of a backroad. Best I've ever tasted. And biggest I've ever seen!

Evie said...

I eat this all the time! Honeycrisp apples ARE the best...and the most expensive:( But so worth it!

xoxo Elizabeth Toledano de Gomez said...

yummy:) Simple and good. Just right

{lovely little things} said...

Such a great pairing, honeycrisps are the best!

Robot Baby said...

Oh, I agree! You have to try Tillamook's Vintage White Extra Sharp Cheddar. It's the best!

katie said...

I'm a fan of the pink lady apples right now ;)

JeNifer said...

the formidible mrs dean said...

I've only discovered Honeycrips this year, and i feel like i've died and gone to apple heaven. I don't know why i've never seen them. With a hunk of sharp chedder. mmm. that is simple and pure.

I could eat this every day

Gianna said...

I'd like to add carrots to this combination. For all my life I loved apples and when I was little my mom made me eat everything when there was apple with it.
One day she grated carrots in very tiny pieces, the same with apples and - on top - some grated cheese.

And this combination was even better than just apple alone.

If you like the apple + cheddar combination, you must try this:

Next time you bake a warm, apple pie, top it with a dollop of pimento cheese. I know it sounds weird, but somewhere in the South it must have become a tradition because my family would do that as a special treat, and it really is delicious!!
