I think my Nicholas could eat these by the buckets! I've never seen a kid eat fried apples like him before :) Saturday morning I got up really sick, I had been sick the entire week with stomach issues (think it's from changing my diet) and Saturday morning I spent the entire morning in the bathroom. There I was sitting thinking I could just die in here and no one would notice, LOL! So a little dramatic on my part, but I got over it! No more stomach cramps and issues anymore!!
Anyway, I came in here and fixed the kids a big breakfast, scrambled eggs, biscuits, bacon (substituted turkey and they didn't even notice,shhh!!), and hash rounds. I just knew I should've fixed apples, well I put everything on the table and sure enough Nicholas said, "You didn't fix any fried apples??". Ahhh, you would think he wouldn't notice, but he did, so I fixed them the very next morning and all was well in his little world once again, oh to be 7 again...
I had fried apples growing up at my house frequently, but I didn't care that much for them. My Mom had 2 seasonings in her kitchen, salt and pepper, beyond pulling out sage for dressing, nothing else was ever there! So cinnamon wasn't a frequent visitor there and here I put cinnamon in just about every thing I can think of!
-4 or 5 apples (whichever kind you have on hand, I use any, red or green; peeled,quartered
-6 Tbls butter, or you can use the whole stick!
-1 cup sugar (more or less, depending on the sweetness/sourness of your apples)
-1 tsp cinnamon (please don't leave out!)
Melt butter and add cinnamon in skillet. Add your apples. Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes. Stir and then add white sugar, cover and cook another 15-20 minutes. Depending on how soft you like your apples. Stir occasionally.
