Fried Apples

3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
4 large apples, cored and sliced (tart works best)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

Cut apples into 1/4 inch slices. Heat butter in a large skillet. Put the apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon in the skillet and cover. Over medium-low heat, cook apple slices 7-10 minutes or until they begin to soften and the syrup thickens. Serve coated with excess syrup on top. Serves 4.

    I have been making this for years, and my three kids love it. I make a big pot of plain oatmeal, dish up some for each of my kids and top it off with the fried apples. I give this to them once or twice a week in the fall and winter as a treat and as a fun way to start the day.

      Alicia I never thought about putting these on oatmeal – duhhhh! Good idea and sounds yummy. I imagine it would taste like the apple and spice instant oatmeal but even yummier. These keep really well in the fridge and are good for leftovers so if you have them for a side dish with dinner the night before you could make extras and use them on the oatmeal the next morning. My kids liked them in their lunch for school too.

    these are great as a topping for pound cakke,w/little whipped topping, or on top of pancakes,etc. also makes a great side for pork roast or chops.

    I do these to serve with baked ham so I put them into a cake pan covered with tin foil. They are great.
    I have also started doing them but slicing sweet potatoes into the same pan since they both go well with cinnamon and b sugar. Saves me mashing and peeling the potatoes and they have the added flavour of the apple.
    My husband loves sweet potatoes and I am so so doing them this way works out great and they are so healthy for you.

    My grandfather will not eat fried apples if they haven’t been peeled! This recipe just reminded me of him. Whenever we go out to eat, he has to ask the waitress if the fried apples have skin on them. Lol. Sounds yummy, y’all. Thanks!

      R if you cover them while they are cooking you don’t need to add the water and it causes the juices and butter to cook to a really nice syrup. I normally like my apples peeled in things like this and apple pies etc. but for some reason I do like the peels okay when I make them like this.
      Another way to do them to is to peel the apples add a small amount of water, a handful of cinnamon candies (red hots) and let those cook uncovered.
