Fried Apples

Dave T.


Little twist on traditional fried apples, and absolutely delicious. Use on biscuits, pancakes, waffles, or just as a side for breakfast or with pork chops. Enjoy, granny did it this way.

These fried apples are so good you'll find yourself munching on them alone. They taste like apple pie filling. We added them to the top of waffles for a delicious breakfast treat. Try them on a buttered biscuit or over vanilla ice cream. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
