Kitchen Tip Tuesday: Simple Apple Recipe
(Kitchen Tip Tuesdays is up a day early, so I'm going ahead and posting it now!)
With fresh apples in abundance, I've been trying to come up with a few new ways to use them. I found this easy recipe for Sauteed Apples and Bacon in the Joy of Cooking. I'm glad I tried it! It was simply delicious and went great with our pancakes for Saturday night supper. I will definitely be making this again. It would be wonderful as a side dish to really any kind of meat.
Sauteed Apples and Bacon
Peel and core:
Tart cooking apples
Cut in cubes, about 4 cups in all.
Saute in a heavy skillet:
8 slices bacon
Remove bacon when crisp. Keep hot. Leave about 2 tablespoons of fat in the skillet. Add:
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (I left this out. There was plenty of oil in the pan in my opinion!)
Add the apples. Saute uncovered over high heat until translucent. Sprinkle with:
2 tablespoons white or brown sugar
I also added a sprinkling of cinnamon.
Place the apples on a hot platter. Surround them with the bacon.
Garnish with parsley if desired.
