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.
The kiddo must love you! Skillet Apples for breakfast? You are the best Mom ever! Even better if he got them with that scoop of icecream!
Ha! Sadly, the Kiddo wouldn’t touch them. Weirdo!
Oh fried apples:) A memory from childhood breakfasts at my Granny’s house in Kentucky. I realized after several attempts that the one thing that made my fried apples was a pinch of salt. Bizarre right?! But it totally adds.
No kidding? I’ll definitely try that next time! Thanks!
Like the previous commenter, my Kentucky grandma makes skillet apples too! YUM!
Mmmm, this looks delish. Must have the ice cream too, of course.
I have been looking for a good skillet apple recipe that doesn’t make a ton. You’ve saved the day! This recipe is sooo delicious! I used it to make a fruit-on-the bottom pudding parfait. Thank you, Erin!
