I created this recipe while trying to recreate the best burger I had ever tasted at a restaurant in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. My family and I think these burgers are better! They are packed with flavor!
For this trusty recipe, pick tart, firm apples that will hold up to the baking. Slice them thinly and add flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of salt. Pile the apples into a prepared crust, dot with butter, and top with another round of pastry. Bake until the apples are tender and the crust is golden.
Crisp rye breads are traditional throughout Scandinavia because rye has a short growing season suitable to far north, and flat breads or crackers store well during long winters. Enjoy this adaptation topped with slices of Norwegian Jarlsberg cheese or Finnish Lappi cheese.
