Apple-Cheddar Turnovers


  • 6 slices whole wheat bread
  • 1 small Gala apple, finely diced
  • A few grates of fresh nutmeg
  • Salt
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • Canola cooking spray


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Run a rolling pin over the slices of bread to make them thinner.
  3. Season the apples with nutmeg and salt, then dress with the lemon juice. Combine with the cheese.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the Dijon mustard and the maple syrup. Spread the mixture on each slice of bread.
  5. Place some of the apple-cheese mixture over each slice of bread on top of the mustard-syrup. Fold the corners of the bread together to create a triangle. Squeeze the sides together to ensure that they are well-sealed.
  6. Arrange the turnovers on a rack set on top of a baking sheet and spray lightly with canola oil. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown.
