Fried apples do well as a side dish with ANYTHING. Slap 'em on a plate with your pork chop and some spinach and you've got a yummy meal. Or you can hold off til dessert and throw some ice cream on top of them in a big ole bowl. How about having them on the side with pancakes for breakfast. YUM-EEEEEE!!! They are easy as pie to make. Go as sweet or as tart as you like. It's a good old fashioned southern delicacy. Enjoy!!

I used granny smith apples and they were small so I doubled the recipe. Since the apples were a bit tarter then what I had wanted I did use more brown sugar and unsalted butter. We enjoyed these apples a lot and I served them as a side dish to internetnut's Recipe #358800. Made and reviewed for My3Chefs - June 2012.
My DH loves fried apples so I doubled the recipe when I made them. I used granny smith apples and unsalted butter. Since the apples were tarter then what I wanted I did add more brown sugar and also cinnamon because I really like the flavor. Will make these again, yummy comfort food.
