The parts that I love about apple crisp are: it is an amazing dessert idea, it is the easiest to make, and it is great for breakfast the next day. Haha guiltyyyy. Apple crisp, aside from pumpkin pie, is my favourite; especially this recipe. This is the ultimate apple crisp recipe; grandmas recipe. “Theeeee” cook in the family and she taught me so much while growing up, so many recipes and ways of doing things, not only in the kitchen but just in life. This recipe is definitely one little gem I’ll never forget.

Growing up in the largest Oktoberfest city, outside of Germany, was awesome. The family-time, the endless flow of beer, music, outfits, parades, long nights of dancing in arenas and halls, and last but not least… the food. All of these things make up an amazing two weeks in Kitchener-Waterloo. Not to mention… through this all… Thanksgiving graces us with it’s b-eau-t-i-ful face. You literally cannot go wrong if you decide to visit K-W this time of year and I suggest to anyone… go. Try it and have a blast. Because you will!
So because I was able to be apart of this amazing celebration while growing up, one of the first ingredients that come to mind this time of year is …. Oktoberfest Mustard. I could eat spoonfuls of this stuff; sweet and tangy and goes with everything. So to celebrate this amazing invention, I came up with a great appetizer or snack idea for your Oktoberfest party or Thanksgiving!
Rustic baguette – I used a spelt sourdough baguette
Shaved yellow onion
Sage white cheddar cheese
Slice the baguette and put the pieces under the broiler for a few minutes.
Spread on the Oktoberfest Mustard.
Top with the onion and crumbled cheese
