For those of you who have been to Cracker Barrel and had their fried apples, don’t you just love them? It’s like eating apple pie without the crust. I happen to like my apple pie ice cold so I put leftovers in the fridge and they were so good!!
I used a few Granny Smith apples that were really on their way to being tossed and since I hate to throw out food, I looked around for something to make and found this recipe. I think any apple that holds its shape well when cooked would probably work. I liked the Granny Smith since they are tart and the sauce is sweet ~ perfect combination.
8 medium Granny Smith apples, chopped into large pieces
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add apples and the rest of the ingredients and stir until combined.
Saute 15-20 minutes or until the apples are tender.
Serve as a side dish, dessert, or even for breakfast.
Makes 6 servings.
