Fried Apples

Sauteed Apples

Maybe this is a Southern ‘thang’ but I don’t care where you are from, fried apples are an amazing accompaniment to your dinner or your ice cream! And, don’t worry, they are not really fried. I think they call them fried apples because they are so amazingly delicious you just assume they have to be fried.

Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time -10min; Cook Time – 10-15 min


4 Granny Smith Apples

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 T cinnamon

4-6 T unsalted butter (you choose)

Special Equipment and Other Items Needed:

These are handy if you want to speed up slicing and coring the apple

Preparing Fried Apples:

First the apples. I mention Granny Smith by name because you need a firm and tart apple. I really don’t like substituting another variety. Slice and core the apple, but leave the peel on.

Toss the apples with the sugar and cinnamon.

Apples with cinnamon and sugar

Heat the butter in a skillet and then add the apples, cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Turn the heat to medium-high. Toss the apples to cover in butter but then let sit for 4-5 minutes. Turn them again and then let sit for another 4-5 minutes. This will help them get a little color and color is what makes flavor!! Cook until the apples are tender.

Serve as a side dish to just about anything but they taste best with pork and chicken or serve them with a bowl of ice cream! Better yet, serve them with both!!
