Denise’s Quick and Easy ‘Baked’ Apple Recipe

Quick and Easy Baked Apples

My five kiddos love all types of fresh fruit and that makes me very happy, but sometimes we get a little bored and want to spice it up a little. This method of “baking” apples in the microwave is super fast and easy, it only takes a few ingredients and you can make as much or as little as you like. We also have a favorite restaurant that serves “fried apples” and when the kids decide it’s time to go eat out but momma isn’t ready I can usually appease them by making them these apples at home – win, win!

I think the idea is great but, is it safe to heat food in a plastic bag? What about the chemicals that leach into the food?

It is not safe to use plastic storage bags in the microwave. Always make sure you are using containers that are labeled microwave-safe. Even though the bag may not melt, dangerous chemicals can leach into the food.
