Preparation: 10 min

Cooking time: 20 min

Ingredients for 4 people :

  • 4 apples kidney of Canada
  • 2 goat droppings
  • 4 branches of thyme
  • 8 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

  • Wash the apples. Remove the stalk. Cut them in half across the width of the fruit (horizontally).
  • Slightly hollow out each piece of apple so that you can later put a slice of goat cheese in it.
  • Place the apples in an ovenproof dish (like a casserole dish). Pour a small dash of olive oil on each apple half.
  • Flavour with a few sprigs of thyme.
  • Salt and pepper.

Bake for 15 min at 200°C.

  • Cut the goat dung into 4 slices in the thickness. Caution: use a sharp knife for this.
  • Place a slice of cheese on each apple half.
  • Place a second time for 5 to 8 minutes under the broiler.
  • Serve hot with a crisp green salad seasoned with cider vinegar and hazelnut (or walnut) oil.

It’s sweet. ET salty!
Variant: goat’s cheese goes perfectly with the honey . Just before putting the apples in the oven, pour a teaspoon of honey over each apple half. They will caramelize during cooking. Perfect for a sweet and sour starter.
