With the arrival of fall comes a whole new batch of fresh produce ready to be baked, fried and steamed. Apples are prime for the picking, just waiting for you to bite in with a crisp, juicy crunch. Although apples are often synonymous with flaky, warm pies, there’s plenty of time to whip one up this season.
So why not make something savory instead?
Start off simple with Paula’s Grilled Apple, Bacon and Cheddar Sandwich With Roasted Red Onion Mayo. Salty bacon makes the crisp apple pop, while the roasted red onion mayo keeps it all moist. Plus, you can’t go wrong with cheddar cheese. Turn your sandwich into a pizza when you use the same essential ingredients to make Sandra’s Canadian Bacon, Sweet Onion and Apple Pizza. In less than 30 minutes, you’ll have an easy weeknight meal.
For a comfort food favorite with endless dipping possibilities, whip up this classic soup-and-sandwich combo. Our hearty grilled cheese is made with rich, gooey-good Muenster, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on warm buttered bread, and the thick tomato soup takes on a creamy texture after a quick puree. Serve this simple supper on a busy weeknight, and your family will be full for hours.

Food Network’s Senior Culinary Editor, Liz Tarpy, picks her favorite recipe for September.
I’ve never warmed to hot fruit with meat and even though there’s no one meal that ruined it for me. No scarring memory of family holidays made even stickier with glazed ham and pineapple (though my stepmom once made poached fish with prunes, but that’s another story). It’s just a knee-jerk reaction I have to any recipe involving sweet meat.
Intellectually and culinarily, I know that sweet and salty play off each other, so meaty and fruity flavors can also work well together. There are many examples in other cuisines that proudly blend the two: Thai curries with pineapple, Cuban picadillo with ground meat and raisins, German roast pork and apples. And let’s not forget the all-American roast turkey and cranberry sauce.
