Fried Apples

Most Sunday breakfasts are some version of a pork gravy. Biscuits and ham or biscuits and sausage gravy, either way to make it a proper Sunday breakfast you need a little something extra on the side. And that something extra should be fried apples.

They’re similar to the apples you toss into a pie crust, only you cook them on the stove and there is no crust. They come out gooey and candy-like, a perfect treat for your Sunday morning. Or evening — they are also great with pork chops for dinner.

Making Fried Apples

Fried apples
Serves 4
3 Granny Smith apples
3 Fuji apples
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Fresh nutmeg

Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place in a skillet over medium heat. Add the rest of the ingredients, and stir until the butter melts and the sugar starts to dissolve. Turn up to medium-high heat.

Let the apples cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, until they are tender, stirring often. Lower the heat if the mixture begins to dry out or become too sticky. Taste the apples and adjust sugar if needed (that means add more – you won’t need less). Serve warm.

Dairy free alternative: Use margarine instead of butter.

Vegan alternative: Use margarine instead of butter, and use vegan sugar in place of brown and white sugars.
