From the time of was a child, I always loved when my mama would fry apples as a side to a big breakfast. I just love fried apples! It’s something about their warm, sweet flavor, and their unique texture, that has me drooling all over my desk at the moment! Fried apples are so delicious, and I finally made them for myself for the first time recently and knew as soon as I made them, that I had to share them with you. They are so easy and what’s more homemade than fried apples? Your hubby will love you even more, after you whip these up this weekend!
So even though these aren’t a “healthy” recipe, I’m going to share them anyway, because they are just so darn good you need to make these this weekend! Especially if you’re located in the south, because nothing fits a snowy weekend better than some warm, and delicious, fried apples. What’s even better about this recipe is that they are so great leftover and you can have them with breakfast OR dinner. They will go quick, so make plenty!
- 1 Bag of Apples (I use McIntosh)
- 1 1/2 cups of sugar
- 2 tablespoons lard (or oil)
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- Cinnamon is optional, but I think they are better without it!
- Peel, core and slice apples
- Heat lard (or oil) and but in a large pan
- Add apples
- Cover the apples with sugar and stir to coat apples well
- Cook apples on low, uncovered, for about 20 minutes
- Stir occasionally, but don’t over stir!! It's easy to over stir them and then you will get applesauce!
- These are so, so delicious and easy to make!
