This sweet-tart casserole is a fun change of pace from traditional vegetable side dishes. It's super-quick to prepare if you use a food processor to slice the apples and carrots. The unique combination complements chicken, fish and pork. -Elizabeth Erwin, Syracuse, New York

Ingredients

  • 6 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
  • 6 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter

Directions

  1. Combine apples and carrots; place in a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish. Drizzle with orange juice. Cover and bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until carrots are crisp-tender.
  2. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar and nutmeg; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake, uncovered, 10-15 minutes longer or until the carrots are tender.
