Mango CRISP!

I have a long-running love affair with Saturday Night Live, seasons new and old. I admit there were some disappointing years in there, but I'm also a Utah Jazz fan, so I've learned to deal with disappointment throughout the years, while keeping my fan status. This little nugget is from one of my favorite skits (that I couldn't find online!) where Mango takes over J Lo's music video shoot & Diva's Live concert. I wish we could watch him/her dance, but lets just remember the better days of Chris Kattan with fondness, shall we?

Here's another treat from my Bountiful Basket treasures. One week we got about a million mangoes, but you won't hear me complaining! We had mangoes on just about everything, and I'm happy to say that I now consider myself to be a mango-cutting pro, folks. I wanted to make something I'd never cooked or eaten before, and voila: mango crisp! I found a recipe online, but didn't follow it much at all - it just wasn't working out - so this is my own creation. If you're feeling fruity, you're sure to love it!

Mango Crisp


5-6 large mangoes, peeled & diced

1-1 1/2 c. quick oats

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1/2-1 c. apple juice

1/4 c. softened butter or margarine

1/2 c. brown sugar

1/2 c. flour


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

1. In a medium bowl, toss mangoes, cinnamon, nutmeg, apple juice & lemon juice. Let sit about 10 min to infuse flavors.

2. Mix margarine, brown sugar, flour, & oats until crumbly.

3. Divide mangoes into 6 small ramekin dishes & top with brown sugar mixture.

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until topping is crispy & golden brown, and the mango filling is bubbling.

Sounds delish! I always liked that Mango skit with Garth Brooks, so goofy!

I've never made a mango crisp, but I imagine it is delicious. I'm new to your blog and spent some time today reading some of your earlier post. I really like your recipes and will be back as often as I can to see what else you've been cooking. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
