Apple-Cheddar Turnovers

Aired September 12, 2011

6 slices whole wheat bread
1 small Gala apple, finely diced
A few grates of fresh nutmeg
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely diced
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Canola cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400F.

Run a rolling pin over the slices of bread to make them thinner.

Season apples with nutmeg and salt then dress with lemon juice. Combine with cheese.

In a small bowl, combine Dijon mustard and maple syrup. Spread mixture on each slice of bread.

Place some of the apple-cheese mixture over each slice of bread on top of the mustard-syrup. Fold the corners of the bread together to create a triangle. Squeeze sides together to ensure they are well-sealed.

Arrange turnovers on a rack set on top of a baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes until golden brown.
