Apple Brown Betty

Memorial day potluck... Apple Brown Betty. The recipe for this was from a Cook's Illustrated issue I got about two years ago and I just now got to make it. Not counting the prep time for chopping and whatnot, this dish was pretty quick and simple to make. First, toasting breadcrumbs, butter, and brown sugar on the stove. Then, cooking butter, chopped apples, more brown sugar, and a bit of cinnamon and ginger, reusing the same pan. At the very end, adding some apple cider and lemon juice, tossing in half of the breadcrumbs, and garnishing with the rest. Basically an apple pie casserole.
