Good Morning America: Trisha Yearwood Homemade Apple Dumplings

Good Morning America invited Trisha Yearwoood, wife of Garth Brooks and accomplished country music herself, to show them how to cook up some delicious Southern food. The first recipe she made, apple dumplings, was so easy she said she taught her niece, who is in college, how to make it. And of course Garth Brooks likes her cooking.

She also cooked up one of Brooks’ favorite breakfast foods, a breakfast bowl, complete with eggs, bacon and pasta. “Garth created this breakfast bowl because he wanted something really hearty,” said Yearwood. “He’s the first person I ever met who puts pasta with eggs and bacon, but it works, and it tastes great!”

Get the recipes for both these dishes below.

GMA: Trisha Yearwood Apple Dumplings Recipe & Breakfast Bowl Recipe

Good Morning America invited Trisha Yearwood on the show to make her homemade apple dumplings recipe and a breakfast bowl her husband Garth Brooks loves.

Ingredients

  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 8 canned buttermilk biscuits
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel, core and slice the apples vertically into 8 slices each. Squeeze the lemon into a bowl of water and add the apple slices to keep them from turning brown.
  3. In a medium saucepan, mix 1 cup water, 3/4 cup of the sugar, the butter and vanilla. Bring to a boil over medium heat.
  4. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching the biscuit slightly to overlap, and seal on the bottom. Make sure to seal tightly. Place the wrapped slices, sealed-side down, in a 9 by 12 by 2-inch casserole dish. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices. Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle the mixture over the tops of the wrapped apples. Bake until golden brown, 35 minutes.

About the author

After graduating from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Journalism and Anthropology, I managed a pizza place for a year, while freelancing for various newspapers in the area. Working every weekend in sauna like conditions, never being able to take a day off and being covered in flour is something I will not miss. I hope Recapo has air conditioning.
