Fried Apples

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


Fried Apples
Fried apples make a breakfast side dish, or top with ice cream or whipped cream for a delicious dessert.

Yield: Makes 6 Servings


  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 medium tart apples, unpeeled, cored, quartered, and sliced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sugar


Melt butter in a medium heavy skillet over medium heat. Add apples to skillet; cover and cook for 5 minutes, or until apples are juicy.

Turn and sprinkle with 1/3 cup sugar. Reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes longer.

Uncover and cook 2 to 3 minutes longer, or until sugar is absorbed and apples are lightly browned on bottom.

Remove from heat and sprinkle with a few more tablespoons of sugar, depending on tartness of apples. Serve hot as a side dish to ham or pork meal, or with breakfast.

Serves 6.

Sweet and versatile, Member darkstarwife

An easy, delicious recipe. I used Gala apples, which are sweet, so I reduced the sugar to 1/4 c. and could have used even a little less. The apples didn't get brown, but the butter and sugar made a nice syrup. The red skin of the apples made the dish look quite pretty, and it went well with my pork entree. My daughter requested I make this recipe for breakfast for her sleepover party. I may add a hint of cinnamon or cardamom if I do. This is a great recipe to use up apples that are getting soft, as mine were.
