Avery Turner


1 onion, diced
1 lbs. ground pork
1 sleeve of Ritz crackers, about 1 to 2 c. crushed
1 T. poultry seasoning
tsp. ground cumin
pinch each of salt and ground black pepper
⅓ c. spicy barbecue sauce, plus additional for serving
2 apples, cored, peeled, and thinly sliced
1 c. grated cheddar cheese
Dough for a double-crust 9" pie, unbaked
hot sauce and ketchup for serving

Preheat the oven to 375.
Lightly brown the onion in a pan over medium heat. Place it, along with the pork, crackers, poultry seasoning, cumin, salt, and pepper in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Pour the filling into a pie shell, spreading it out evenly. Brush the sauce over the pork mixture. Arrange a layer of sliced apples over the top of the sauce, then sprinkle in cheese over the top of the apples.
Cover with the second piece of dough. Fold the top dough under the edge of the bottom crust and pinch the edges shut. Cut decorative steam holes in the top of the pastry and bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until golden brown. Serve with the option of BBQ sauce, hot sauce, or ketchup.
