Fried Apples'n'onions (Little House)

Fried Apples'n'onions (Little House) created by Baby Kato

This is a traditional "country" dish. Sugar is optional, but I think it's better with it. Try this for breakfast with fried potatoes. This recipe came from "The Little House Cookbook" by Barbara M Walker, and the food featured in "Farm Boy."

ingredients

directions

  • Fry bacon or salt pork slices in a skillet until brown and crisp. Set them aside on a warm serving platter.
  • While the meat is frying, peel the onions and slice them as thinly as possible.
  • Core the apples and cut them crosswise in circles about 1/4 inches thick. Apple skins help the slices keep their shape and add color to the dish, so don't peel unless the skins are tough or scarred.
  • Drain all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the skillet, then add the onion slices. Cook them over medium high heat for about 3 minutes.
  • Cover with apple slices in an even layer. Sprinkle brown sugar over all, cover the skillet, and cook until tender, a few minutes more. Stir only to prevent scorching.
  • Remove to the warm plate with the bacon or salt pork slices and serve.

    We loved this recipe Sascha. I served it with pan fried potatoes for breakfast. I used nice fresh picked russet apples, sweet onions and maple bacon. They were wonderful together. It was a lovely change to the usual breakfast fare. Next time I make this I will serve scrambled eggs on the side as I believe the flavors will all blend beautifully together. Thank you so much for sharing this treat.

    Some of my family liked this, and some didn't. I didn't care for it-it wasn't either savory, or sweet, but it also wasn't sweet & sour. Just too bland for me, I guess.

    I have made this often.. and surprisingly apples and onions go well together. I like serving it with pork. Its very good.
