As American as apple pie…? I don’t know about you, but it’s been a good long while since I had an apple pie. Much less made one. And being as I’m Texas girl? I’ll stick with these Baked Caramel Apple Pie Taquitos!
Homemade apple pie filling is rolled up together with a creamy caramel filling and then dusted with cinnamon sugar for a perfectly simple take on apple pie, Tex-Mex style! These apple pie bites of goodness would be great as a part of breakfast (or brunch), or as dessert.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and cut the tip of the garlic off to leave the cloves exposed.
Drizzle with the 1 Tsp. olive oil and wrap it up in foil.
Place it in the oven to bake for about an hour to roast.
While the garlic is roasting, whisk together the ingredients for the seasoning; 2 Tsp. salt, 2 Tsp. red pepper, 1 Tsp. marjoram, 1 Tsp. basil, 1 Tsp. oregano, 1 Tsp. thyme, and 1 Tsp. pepper.
Cut the chicken tenders in half (or don’t!) and and place in a large ziplock back to season with about 2 Tbsp. of the seasoning; place in the fridge to marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to overnight.
Once the garlic is done roasting, allow it to cool slightly before removing the roasted garlic cloves from the bulb (It should squeeze right out.)
Place the roasted garlic, 1/4 C. greek yogurt, 1/4 C. mayo, 2 Tbsp, parmesan cheese, 1 Tbsp. corn syrup, 1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, the remaining 1 Tbsp. of seasoning, and 1 Tsp. lemon juice together in the cup for an immersion blender or regular blender. Puree down until smooth and creamy; cover and place in the fridge to keep cool.
Once the chicken has marinated, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with foil or a silicone baking mat for easy clean up. Place a wire rack or two over the baking sheet and set aside.
Remove the chicken from the fridge and toss to coat lightly with cornstarch. Dust off any loose remaining cornstarch and place on the prepared wire rack on the baking sheet.
Give a light spritz of non-stick baking spray and place in the oven to bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven, flip the pieces of chicken over, give them another spritz of non-stick spray, and bake for another 20 minutes.
Once done and cooked through to temperature, remove from the oven and toss to coat with the parmesan garlic sauce.

Introduction and My Rating
You might call me “pancake impaired.” Really, I make a mess. So this year, I have moved from the stovetop to the oven.
I bake my pancakes, and a 10-inch skillet makes a perfect serving for two.
It is foolproof. I have a wonderful blueberry version my wife loves. I have a carrot cake version I love. So it is time for another variation.
It can’t be a five per my wife since there are no blueberries. Don’t tell her I made it a five.
I used 10-inch cast iron, but a 9-inch pie pan or another pan should be fine.
This recipe makes a large breakfast for 2. If you want more, increase the amount by 50% and use two eggs and bake in a 12-inch pan.
Don’t be afraid to turn the broiler on near the end to increase the browning.
I always sprinkle the top with about 1/4 cup of walnuts. Use pecans or skip if you want.
Note: You will see Almond milk, in the picture, and yes, that is what I used (just what I happened to have), but any milk or milk substitute will do.
Combine with How to Cook Bacon in the Oven or How To Cook Sausage in the Oven for a complete breakfast.

Preheat oven to 375°. Add an oven-safe pan to preheat also. I used a 10-inch cast-iron skillet. You may notice the almond milk. I had it leftover from my milk allergic son’s visit. Use any milk you want.
Mash one ripe banana.
Add one egg, two tablespoons oil, and 3/4 cup milk. Whisk together.
Remove preheated pan and coat with one tablespoon butter.
Mix dry. 1 cup flour, two tablespoons sugar, two teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix wet into dry.
Pour into the heated pan and top with 1/4 cup chopped nuts. I like walnuts, but pecans are fine or just skip the nuts.
Bake for 25 minutes. You can turn the broiler on near the end if you want more browning.

Preheat oven to 375°. Add an oven safe pan to the oven to preheat, also. I used a 10-inch cast iron skillet.
Mash one ripe banana then add one egg, two tablespoons oil, and 3/4 cup milk. Whisk together.
Remove preheated pan and coat with one tablespoon butter.
Mix dry. one cup flour, two tablespoons sugar, two teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix wet into dry.
Pour into the heated pan and top with 1/4 cup chopped nuts. I like walnuts but pecans will be good. Or just skip the nuts.
Bake for 25 minutes. You can turn the broiler on for a few minutes near the end to brown more if needed.
A double size recipe will use a 12-inch cast iron pan or a 9X13 casserole or cake pan. Cooking time should be unchanged.
The riper the banana, the sweeter.
Be sure to preheat the pan with the oven for at least a few minutes.
I like to use a 9-inch cast iron pan but this will work well in a 9-inch round baking pan or 8X8 or 6X9 baking dish.
The nuts are optional. I like walnuts but pecans are also a favorite.
You might need a few minutes of the broiler to brown the pancake to your preference at the end. I need it in one of my ovens but not the other.

ADJUST THE RECIPE SIZE:
You may adjust the number of servings in this recipe card under servings. This does the math for the ingredients for you. BUT it does NOT adjust the text of the instructions. So you need to do that yourself.
Nutrition is generally for one serving. Number of servings is stated above and is my estimate of normal serving size for this recipe.
All nutritional information are estimates and may vary from your actual results. This is home cooking, and there are many variables. To taste ingredients such as salt will be my estimate of the average used.
