This is another one of those recipes that I have written down on a scrap of paper and tucked away. I have no idea where it came from, but it’s so yummy.
It’s also what I had for breakfast this morning. Is that wrong? It’s fruit, people.
Try this. Seriously. Gather:
- 1 skillet (I used my smallest cast iron)
- 2 Granny Smith apples
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- Sprinkle of nutmeg
- Core and slice apples (uniformly sized pieces are your friends so they’ll cook evenly; you can also peel them if your little heart desires, but I dig the peels)
- Melt butter in skillet
- Add apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to skillet and stir to combine and coat apples (note: the mixture will look a little dry at first and you’ll be tempted to add more butter, but don’t; as the apples cook down they’ll get nice and juicy and everything will be great)
- Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes or until apples are nice and tender and sauce is starting to thicken
- Serve for breakfast
I can neither confirm nor deny that these are crazy good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Just sayin.
