Parmesan Apples


  • 2 medium Braeburn or Gala apples
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar
  • Dash ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • Honey, optional


  • Add 1 cup of water to the inner pot of a large multi-cooker. Cut a 1/4-in. slice off top of each apple. Core apples, leaving bottoms intact.
  • In a small bowl, mix cheese, oats, flour, brown sugar and nutmeg; stir in melted butter until crumbly. Carefully fill apples with oat mixture. Place stuffed apples in a baking dish (must fit inside inner pot) and cover tightly with foil. Place covered dish on wire rack with handles; use handles to lower into inner pot over water. Lock pressure lid. Press pressure function; select custom setting. Press timer; set to 8 minutes. Start.
  • Let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure.
  • Remove foil. Close air frying lid. Press air fry function; select custom setting. Press timer; set to 7 minutes. Start. Cook until topping is lightly browned. To serve, drizzle with honey, if desired.

A dear friend and I wanted to make an easy apple crisp. We made a Parmesan filling then stuffed it into whole apples. We like to call it pure genius. —Susan Stetzel, Gainesville, New York
