Fried Apples


Fried Apples I always thought of fried apples as a regional dish. A specialty dish that us Kentuckians ate to accompany our typical weekend breakfast fare of biscuits and gravy, fried potatoes, eggs and sausage.  Imagine my surprise when I first saw it on Cracker Barrel’s menu! Oh sweet joy to my mouth!!  I ordered it and greatly anticipated the warm gooey fruit concoction that I grew up eating. Sadly it was a disappointment to my taste buds. So I did what any respectable girl would do and shoved them down my throat and made a mental note to boycott Cracker Barrel in the future. Waste not want not 🙂

I didn’t enjoy them again until I started fixing them for my own kids.  This has always been one of LittleChef2’s favorite foods!  He’s not a big sweet eater, but boy can he put these away! I had fried apples growing up at my house frequently, but I didn’t care that much for them. My Mom had 2 seasonings in her kitchen, salt and pepper, beyond pulling out sage for dressing, nothing else was ever there! So cinnamon wasn’t a frequent visitor there and here I put cinnamon in just about every thing I can think of!
