Fried apples are wonderful anytime.

Serve these skillet fried apples for breakfast with homemade buttermilk biscuits and butter or as a side dish anytime.   They will melt in your mouth!  My family loves fried apples.  We could eat them every meal.  Fried apples will keep for several days refrigerated and reheat well in the microwave.  I love them on a cold biscuit for a snack in the afternoon or with a cup of coffee anytime. Most children will love the sweetness of these apples, too.  They are great on a brunch table.  I fry all kinds of apples because it is a great way to use them up if they are about to go bad.

Fried apples make a great dish to take to any gathering or event.

4 or 5 apples, unpeeled, cored and sliced

2 tablespoons bacon drippings, Optional

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon salt

In a skillet over medium heat, add bacon drippings and margarine.  Add apple slices, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Stir well to make sure apples slices are covered with spices and brown sugar.  Bring to a boil and cover.  Cut heat back to simmer and cook for 20 – 25 minutes until apples are soft but not mushy.   Remove from pan and spoon any remaining liquid over apples.  Enjoy!
