American as apple pie!

•2 cups bread crumbs*
•1/4 cup margarine melted
•4 cups apple slices tart
•1/2 cup packed brown sugar
•1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
•1 lemon juice and peel
•1/2 cup apple juice

* Use whole grain bread to make the crumbs. Substitute 1-2 tablespoons wheat germ for equal amount of crumbs if preferred.

•1. Prepare apples: peel, core and slice thinly to equal 4 cups. Use Granny Smith or other tart apples.

•2. Grate the rind of 1/2 of the lemon, being careful not to include any of the pith just below the peel. Juice half the lemon, or all if it is a small lemon.

•3. Mix bread crumbs with melted margarine and blend.

•4. Mix sugar with nutmeg, lemon peel and juice; blend.

•5. Grease a casserole dish with margarine. Put a layer of crumbs on bottom, spread half the apples atop then half the sugar mixture. Put the rest of the apples, then the sugar and top with remaining crumbs. Add 1/2 cup very hot apple juice or water. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 40 minutes or until done. Cover loosely with foil tent for first 20 minutes to prevent crumbs browning too quickly.

•Serving Ideas: Serve with a tart lemon sauce, brandy sauce, or ice cream.
