CHEDDAR APPLE BITES // shutterbean

Cheddar and apples. It’s totally a thing. I think I heard of this combo when I was a kid and was like WHAAAAT? Whyyyyyy? And then I tried it….it took awhile…. and then I became a believer.  It works best with extra sharp cheddar cheese.  It’s sweet…it’s savory…and if we had to make it into THE PERFECT BITE, I’d probably add a pretzel on top. GAME OVER.

    Love the combo of sweet and salty and creamy! OMG with a pretzel on top – BEST IDEA EVER!

    My daughter just peeked over my shoulder, looked at the apple cheddar bites and suggested I make some for her lunch. Done! Easy, nutritious snack. Deal kid! Especially with Cabot cheese, I love Cabot cheese so so good!

    I have been reading your site for quite a while and think your photographs are completely amazing. However, I can’t help but feel like we’re being punked with some of the food posts lately. An apple slice with cheese on it? I will keep coming back because your photos are stunning, but I would love if some of your food posts had a little more substance to them. Just one little lonely readers opinion..

      Thanks for the compliment on my photography! Every Thursday I post little snack ideas rather than full blown recipes. I’m certainly not trying to punk you, they’re just ideas. Have a great day!

        Tracy, I’m amazed that you post as often as you do! It is an all consuming job. Your snack ideas are things that many people may not have thought about. Keep up the good work.

    Yes! So good! Sharp cheddar cheese is what I lived on during my first trimester ha Cheddar cheese paired with apples or crackers. I lived on that for over a month.

    Love this combo! I like to take it up a notch and eat this with some salted peanuts too. 🙂

    YES. also, you can drizzle a little honey on your cheddar apple bites and thank me later. 🙂

    We’re all so competitive to come up with new and inventive recipes that we often forget how satisfying something simple can be. Thanks for reminding us, and as always, your lovely photography.

  • Jamie

    Ah, a classic for a reason. I’ll try it with pretzels soon, but I’m thinking a bite sized piece of bacon would be good, too. = )

  • Coty and Mariah@quirksandtwists

    The simplicity of this recipe is what makes it so good! Extra sharp always!

  • Karishma

    yum yum yum, this is definitely the perfect snack. Cheddar anything is always a winner!

  • HilaryT

    Yum! Just finished Whole30, actually still on the reintroduction phase and everything on your website is making me drool/stomach growl! Even the snack bars in you on the go essentials post! I think I’m about to get hangry!

    When I was little, I always thought it was weird when my dad and granddad would put cheese on their apple pie, but now I totally get it.

  • MIra C.

    This is one of my favorite go-to snacks! So delicious.

    There’s this saying: “An apple without cheese is like a hug without a squeeze.” Agreed! 🙂
