Fried Apples-just a few simple ingredients, butter, brown sugar cinnamon and 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.

Fried Apples-just Granny Smith Apples, Brown Sugar, Cinnamon and Butter

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. Try them as a topping on  Buttermilk Pancakes

Fried Apples

Fried Apples


  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 3-4 apples, cored and sliced (skin on or off, it's your preference)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Melt butter in a medium frying pan. Add sliced apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. Simmer over medium low heat until bubbly. Continue cooking for about 10-20 minutes (depending on how thick you cut your apples) until apples are tender.

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.

  19. I have added you to my blogger list after discovering that you love apples 😛 😀 I’ll try this soon!! ^^

  20. I grew up eating fried apples mostly at breakfast time and with the fondest memories being when camping. Mom would fry bacon and then add the sliced apples to the hot grease, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar and cook until the apples were tender.. the smell of apples cooking in the iron skillet always got us out of the sleeping bags! I cooked them for my kids, 4-H and Scouts too and they always asked for them when we went camping.. Such wonderful memories..
