My family loves when I make fried apples.
They are so tasty to have as a side with a pork tenderloin sandwich.

Serves: 6

10 Gala Apples
1 Tbsp of lemon juice (use the real stuff)
1 Tbsp of cinnamon
3/4 Cup of brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter

Begin melting the butter over a low heat. You do not want to scorch the butter. Immediately begin coring and slicing your apples right into the butter. Once all the apples are cut up continue folding them over. Be gentle so they don’t break apart. As the apples get tender add in the the lemon juice, cinnamon and sugar and continue cooking until the apples are tender (and limp). Then serve. All I can say is YUMMY!!!

Oh my MIL loves Cracker Barrel’s fried apples! I will have to make this for her! Thanks so much for this post. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

These sound great and easy, too. Apples are usually one of the sides I order at Cracker Barrel.

I’m a little older and am learning how to make more tah the basic foods. This may seem stupid but should I peel the apples first????

Dennis I’m 65 and my wife doesn’t cook

Dennis,
No question is stupid. I leave my peels on. If you hate the peel you could take it off but we prefer it on.

They are so easy and so yummy.

7 CHERI October 2, 2012 at 6:19 pm

I hope she like them as much as we do Cindy

Gertie–you are making me want to go make some.

It would sure be nice if we could find a place to print out the recipes we like!!

10 CHERI October 2, 2012 at 8:25 pm

Beverly,
I will work on that.
Thanks for the suggestion.
xo,
Cheri

Have you tried cooking these in the crock pot? Am just curious… Thanks.

12 CHERI October 4, 2012 at 9:40 am

Heather,
No I haven’t but I bet they would be good.

This is the very same recipie I’ve been making for years, except I also put a jigger of spiced rum and called them drunken apples.

14 Heather October 7, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Didn’t use a crock pot — but made these today. Yummy is a very good description! Enjoying them with shredded cheese! Weird am sure but I like apples and cheese….

15 CHERI October 8, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Heather– there was a restaurant in KC that used to have apple pie with cheese on top/

I have begun working on having printables for each of my recipes. I have added the printable to my fried apples so you can have it for your recipe files.

Cheri, my father in law once said, Apple pie without cheese is like getting a hug without a squeeze.

I make something similar with just cup up apple, a pat of butter, and a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and microwave until the apple is as done as you like. We serve this alongside our Christmas ham or other ham dinner nights. My hubby always liked applesauce with his ham, but it was the only time he ate it and it would always mold in between uses. This became an easy alternative. I can do however many apples I want and it complements the ham perfectly.

How can I print the apple recipe?

20 Ray O'Rourke October 2, 2013 at 8:46 am

I suppose I could use Granny Smith’s and other assorted red apples. Do you agree?
Thanks – Really enjoy your site!
