Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 15 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
Serve this versatile side dish with baked ham and cheese grits, or spoon over hot buttered biscuits. Balsamic vinegar and onion give the variation a savory note that's perfect with grilled chicken or pan-fried pork chops. Both versions are delicious sprinkled with lightly salted, roasted pecans.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 5 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced (about 2 1/4 lb.)
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice

How to Make It

  1. Melt butter in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat; add apples and remaining ingredients. Sauté 15 to 20 minutes or until apples are tender.

  2. Skillet-Fried Balsamic Apples and Sweet Onion: Omit apple pie spice. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add 2 large sweet onions, sliced, and sauté 5 minutes. Add apples, brown sugar, and 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, and sauté 15 to 20 minutes or until apples are tender. Makes 6 servings. Prep: 15 min., Cook: 20 min.
