Cinnamon Breakfast Apples

An old recipe that I just stumbled over again. Tastes great on homemade biscuits. With some grits and eggs and you have a real "southern" breakfast treat.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  2. Pare apples and chop into bite sized pieces.
  3. Put in a 4 C measure and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar as you add the apples.
  4. When you have 4 cups, put apples, water and butter into a saucepan.
  5. Cover and cook over low to medium heat, stirring once or twice, for 15-20 minutes or until apples are tender.

Very good! I melted the butter in a 12 inch saucepan then layered the apples and sugar mixed with cinnamon. They were very flavorful, not at all difficult to make. I took them up after the 15 minutes, we like a little crunch. We had these with biscuits and eggs as suggested (no grits) :-) I will make these again. Thanks Mysterygirl!

Family loved it - only change I made was to thicken it at the end of cook time, using 1 T cornstarch with 1 T water. It tastes like apple pie filling. Next time I may try using splenda so I can share with my diabetic mother in law.
