Bacon Apple Pie

A fully cooked bacon lattice topped apple pie in a foil pie tray.

Somewhere between sweet and savory, this pie mixes sweet-tart apples and salty bacon. It is unusual to think of bacon as part of a dessert but it balances very well in this recipe.

You can choose to make your own pie crust which is relatively easy if not a too hotter day. Alternatively, if camping, use a pre-made crust as used in this recipe.

The pie can be served alone or with traditional apple pie toppings like ice cream, whipped cream, or custard. It can be served hot, warm, or cold. However the cooler it is the better it slices as the apples set.

Ingredients

  • 1 (9-inch) pie crust
  • 5 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/4 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch (cornflour)
  • 1 tablespoon Amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 10 slices bacon

Equipment

  • 9 inch skillet

Directions

  • Preheat the camp oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  • Place the pie crust in a 9-inch skillet and leave the edges overhanging. (The pie crust may be taken out of the foil tray that it comes in or the whole tray placed in the skillet.)
  • Mix together the sliced apples, brown sugar, nutmeg, cloves, cornstarch, Amaretto liqueur, and maple syrup.
  • Place the apples, along with any remaining syrup, in the pie crust making sure the apples all lay flat so there are no large air pockets. 
  • Create the bacon lattice pattern on a chopping board then transfer over the top of the pie.
  • Trim the bacon to the edge of the pie with butchering scissors or a knife. Fold the bacon edges down between the edge of the apples and the pie crust.
  • Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated camp oven, or until bacon is crisp and filling is bubbling.
