Ham Slices

ingredients
4 medium sized Gala apples
8 slices Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon, finely diced
1/4 cup finely diced sweet onion 
2 tablespoons salted butter, divided
1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking)
1 cup + 2 tablespoons unsweetened vanilla almond milk
3 tablespoons raisins
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon apple pie spice
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350˚F.  Place 1/4 cup water into 2-quart round baking dish.  Set aside.

Using melon baller or spoon, scoop out a hole measuring about 2-inches in diameter in each apple, being careful not to break through the bottom or sides of the apple. Be sure to leave at least a 1/2-inch thick wall of apple all around. Reserve the insides of the apple.

Finely dice enough of the reserved apple to measure 1/2 cup. 

Place diced apple, Canadian Bacon, onion and one tablespoon butter into skillet. Sauté over medium heat for 3-4 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are fragrant and translucent. 

Add oats and almond milk into skillet and cook until nearly all almond milk has been absorbed, roughly 6-8 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sticking and adjust temperature if needed to prevent burning. Remove from heat, stir in raisins, brown sugar, maple syrup, ground cinnamon and apple pie spice. 

Fill each apple with oatmeal mixture. Cut remaining tablespoon of butter into fourths and place one piece on top of each apple. Place apples, open side up, into prepared baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until a fork can easily pierce through the side of each apple.  Allow to sit for 5 minutes before serving.  

If desired top each apple with a dollop of Greek yogurt (about 2 tablespoons) and sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon.
