Ingredients

6 slices applewood smoked bacon
1 (8 1/2-ounce) package corn muffin mix
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon paprika
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup 2 percent reduced-fat milk
2 large Granny Smith apples, cored and thinly sliced
1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.
  2. Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove and drain on paper towels. Reserve drippings, and coarsely crumble bacon when cool enough to handle.
  3. Combine muffin mix, flour, paprika, egg and milk; stir well to form a dough. Divide into 4 portions, and put 2 portions on each of the prepared pans. Press into 7-inch circles with your fingers.
  4. Top each dough circle with a layer of apple slices, leaving a 1-inch border. Fold edges roughly around outer edges of apple slices. Brush apples and crust with bacon drippings. Bake 10 minutes. Top with blue cheese and crumbled bacon. Bake 7 minutes longer or until edges are golden brown. Cut into halves and serve warm. Serves 8.
