Grilled “Baked” Stuffed Apples

Old-Fashioned Baked Apples Made on The Grill

Baked apples are a classic fall dish and I am as partial to them as dessert as I am having them for breakfast! Try these grilled baked apples first thing in the morning, rewarmed in the microwave, with a dollop of Greek yogurt and maybe a sprinkling of granola. The smokiness from a covered grill truly adds to the fruity flavor. You want to use apples that retain their color and texture; some varieties will turn brown and/or mushy, so stick with recommended apples.

Grilled “Baked” Stuffed Apples
Makes: 4
  • 4 Pink Lady or Jazz apples
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
  • ½ cup sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  1. Have your grill going at a medium heat. If you have a temperature gauge, aim for a range of 325°F to 375°F. Have rack set at its most indirect position.
  2. Core apples almost to the bottom. Do not pierce through the bottom or the sides. Trim a ½-inch strip of skin from the top, exposing the flesh.
  3. Stir together raisins, nuts, sugar and cinnamon and divide into apple cavities.
  4. Place apples on indirect grill grate, close grill, and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes or until apple is tender when pierced with a small, sharp knife. Do not over-bake or the apples will burst. Serve immediately as is or with a scoop of ice cream. Apples may also be refrigerated in airtight container, re-warmed in microwave and served for a great breakfast.

Bakepedia Tips

  • Alternative apples to try would be Cortland or Golden Delicious. The Cortland might bake more quickly and the Goldens work, but you won’t get a pretty pink color.
