While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

Move over, Rover, and let apples turn over - July 5 is National Apple Turnover Day.

Instead of your boring morning cereal, slapping some just-like-Mom-used-to-make apple pie filling onto a sheet of puff pastry and folding it over makes the perfect portable pie.

This grandfather to the great American Pop-Tart has a long history, dating back to ancient times.  Different cultures experimented with sweet and savory fillings, but apple remains a classic favorite.

Shredding the apples and marrying their flavor with sugar and lemon juice makes this turnover a supreme treat. Pick up some puff pastry on the way home or make your own.

Or maybe if you messed up on the Fourth of July, make some of these to show you've turned over a new leaf.
