    Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Add shallot and chorizo and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until onion is tender. Add breadcrumbs, sage and lemon rind and cook, stirring, for 1 min or until well combined.
  3. Step 3

    Place apples in a medium baking dish, cut side up. Fill the apples with the chorizo mixture and sprinkle with fetta. Replace apple tops. Pour ½ cup water into base of the dish. Cover with foil. Bake for 30-35 mins or until apples are tender.
