No no no, this is not the type of goulash you probably know. This is a whole new goulash, no beef included. Crispy buttery top, crispy buttery bottom and in between… is a heavenly gooey apple filling, this is my apple goulash.
In the Middle East, goulash is the fillo dough – you know that thing you can find in the freezer section of your local grocery store. This amazing apple goulash is a little bit unusual, I have to admit. Instead of layering the fillo dough sheets under and above the filling – as we usually do- I layered some at the bottom and shredded the rest on the top, the result is a beautifully looking and super delicious treat.
The top is light and crispy, the bottom is buttery and crunchy and the filling….. good gracious, the filling for this goulash is something to dream about.
It is loaded with hearty apple swimming in gooey sugar and butter sauce. This recipe was certified A+ by the boys and their dad. There were smiles all around. I’ll be making this again in the coming Thanksgiving gathering and I hope you’ll give this a try. This is comfort food at it’s finest.
I’ll leave you now with the visual recipe and a handy printable …. no excuse not to make it :)… Have a great weekend…. Enjoy!!
