Apple-Plum Tarts with Rye-Cornmeal Crust
Start your month of apples with these beautiful, rustic tarts from author Susan Spungen. They have a tender tasty crust made with rye flour and cornmeal. They’re extremely easy on the cook because they can be made ahead at any stage: The dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days and the unbaked tarts can be assembled and refrigerated overnight. You can even freeze them after you bake them and just reheat before serving.

Brussels Sprout Slaw with Ginger Gold Apple
At Graft Wine + Cider Bar in the Finger Lakes, chef Christina McKeough uses local apples in everything from salads to pie to the tangy mostarda slathered on her smoked-Gouda grilled cheese sandwiches. She loves to use a tart-sweet Ginger Gold in this Brussels sprout slaw for its crisp texture. We love it, too.
Cumin-and-Jaggery-Glazed Apple Pie
Of course, we're going to hit you with an apple pie recipe, but not the classic one you might think. Cookbook author and chef Asha Gomez’s striking apple pie gets a glossy finish from melted jaggery, a deep amber sugar, and piquant cumin seeds. Save any extra glaze for a last-minute drizzle before serving.

Apple Cinnamon Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
Warm, fragrant and spiced with cinnamon apples, this wonderful quinoa breakfast bowl is a great way to start the morning. It only takes 30 minutes to make, which means it's totally doable on a weekday. But you can also enjoy this leisurely for breakfast on the weekend. We'll probably do both.
Apple-and-Pear Galette with Walnut Streusel
Curried Carrot and Apple Soup
Pumpkin, Ricotta and Apple Frittata
This apple and pumpkin frittata makes a terrific fall breakfast. Unlike a quiche, a frittata does not require a crust and can be whipped up quickly to serve a large crowd. If roasting the pumpkin beforehand, make sure to put the cast-iron skillet in the oven while it is preheating in the morning so the eggs start to bake as soon as they hit the pan.
Pan-Seared Sausages with Apples
At Farm Bloomington, Daniel Orr sells a number of Midwestern sausages, including bratwurst from Fiedler Family Farms in Rome, Indiana. But sweet Italian sausages will work in this recipe, too. Be sure to use cooking apples that will hold their shape, like Granny Smiths, Winesaps or Rome Beauties.
Cinnamon Maple Breakfast Polenta with Sautéed Apples
It may be time to ditch the oatmeal and go for a different warm grain in the morning. A bowl of creamy polenta topped with fall's freshest apples is a great, delicious breakfast. The added sweetness of maple syrup and cinnamon makes this polenta a morning favorite on crisp autumn weekends.
