Fried Apples

After I posted the tomato gravy recipe  I started thinking about other things my mamaw cooked up that I loved and fried apples was definitely next on the list.  It couldn’t come at a better time since I’m knee deep in apples from our visit to the orchard.
I’m Bubba Gump-ing apples over here:  apple butter, applesauce, dried apples, baked apples with oatmeal, cinnamon apples chips, apple and gouda salad…

Shall I continue?

No, you’re going to want to stop and check out this ridiculously simple recipe for fried apples.  This is the South… of course we fry apples!dsc_8318webedit

I call one apple a serving in this recipe.  You can adjust the recipe amounts based on how many people you’re feeding.


  • 1 apple; cored, quartered and sliced thin
  • 1 teaspoon bacon grease OR 1 teaspoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup



  1. First we’ll core our apple and quarter it.  Take each quarter and make long thin slices (Around 1/4 inch or so).
  2. Heat your bacon grease (or butter) in a pan over medium heat. Once grease is warm or butter is melted, add in apple slices.
  3. Cover the pan and let the apple slices cook for about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from heat and add in 1 teaspoon maple syrup and 1 teaspoon brown sugar.  Stir well so all the slices are coated.
  5. Enjoy!
