Aug 24, 2010Lunch, Recipes

This fun and delicious lunch will please kids and adults alike.


6  slices center cut bacon
2  large gala apples, about 1 pound, cored
8  tablespoons creamy peanut butter
4  ounces thinly sliced deli turkey breast


  1. Heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium and add the bacon; cook, turning once until crisp, 7-8 minutes. Transfer bacon to a plate covered with paper towel to drain. When cool, cut into 2 to 3-inch strips.
  2. Trim off the bottom 1/4 of the apples and cut each in 6 slices. Spread the top of 8 slices each with1 tablespoon peanut butter. Divide the turkey over 4 of the peanut-butter topped slices; top the other four with the bacon strips.
  3. Build the stacks: start with a turkey-topped apple slice; place a bacon-topped slice on top, and finish with a “plain” apple slice.
