Fried Apples-fried up southern style!

I don’t know if this is a Southern thing or not but I’ve always associated Fried Apples with Southern. Growing up I loved getting to spend the night at my grandparents. They had a small farm, always a few cows, a horse, dogs and cats. My Grandpa worked for DuPont, the farm was just his hobby. So my Grandpa was an early riser. I loved getting up with him to feed the animals, then he’d come in and fix breakfast. If you were up early enough and helped with the chores, he’d cook for you too. The one thing I remember from these breakfasts were my Grandpa’s Fried Apples. It didn’t matter what else he made, if there were apples in the house, then there’d be Fried Apples on the plate.

Usually, he’d make this with Granny Smith apples, but really, you can make this with any apple. I do like the tart apples the best. And you can do so much with fried apples. The perfect side with breakfast.

Then just serve them up. If you want more syrup with your apples just increase your butter and brown sugar.

  14. Don’t know if fried apples are particularly southern. I grew up eating them and live in the northwest. They are so yummy and make a wonderful side dish to serve with pork instead of applesauce. Every cook should know about these so I am including a link to your post on my Friday Finds this week. Thanks for sharing.
