Fried Apples

A few weeks ago, I visited a patient in his home & his wife had just made breakfast: eggs, ham steak, & fried apples. I haven’t had fried apples in years & understood I would soon be making some. When I woke this morning, it was a cold 30° outside & knew today was the day.


2 apples

3 tbsp butter, salted is fine

Pinch of salt if using unsalted butter

2 tbsp brown sugar

3/4 tsp cinnamon

Dash of nutmeg


Peel, core, & chop both apples; set aside.

In a small dish, whisk together the brown sugar, cinnamon, & nutmeg together; set aside.

In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter (add in a pinch of salt if using unsalted butter), stirring until butter becomes brown, careful to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.

Add the sugar & spice blend into the skillet & mix together with the brown butter for 30 seconds.

Toss in the chopped apples, turn to coat, & stir intermittently & allow to cook for 10 – 12 minutes until apples are soft.
