While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
Just in time for apple picking season, October 5 is Brown Betty Day - but what the heck is a Brown Betty anyway?
Similar to an apple crisp or cobbler, it's all the taste of apple pie without futzing with the crust. Sliced apples are sprinkled and layered with a mixture of brown sugar, cinnamon, chopped nuts and buttered bread crumbs.
The dessert is then dotted with butter and baked until brown. Serve warm with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream and you've got yourself a genuinely sweet ode to autumn that's easy as pie.

My mother grew up in the Depression and used to say that all they had was apple pie for breakfast.. I got to love it!
Sounds great. But you need to drizzle some high fructose corn syrup over your brown betty and ice cream for that finishing sugary touch.
