So I checked the mail before waiting for the school bus yesterday and that was the ticket to dinner! My Food Network Magazine was in there so I flipped through it while waiting for the girls to get home. I had already decided to make none other than the exciting Grilled Cheese for dinner but then I saw Melissa d’Arabian’s recipe ads for Kellogg’s.
She had a spiced apple compote that she was serving on Kellogg’s waffles. Well, I had a box of waffles in the freezer and all the ingredients for the compote so dinner took a new look—Waffles and left over sausage! Perfect dinner for a night when Brad isn’t home.
Emily helped me make the compote. It was a nice addition to the waffles.
Spiced Apple Compote
Peel, Core, and Cut into 1/2 inch pieces:
- 2 baking apples (I used granny smith apples)
In a small saucepan combine:
- 2 T sugar
- 1 T lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
Cook and stir over medium-high heat about 5 minutes or until slightly softened.
Reduce heat to medium.
Cook, covered, for 12 minutes or until softened, stirring occasionally.
