Apple slices fried in a pan! These are a good side with fried sausages and mashed potatoes. They would also be excellent served with vanilla ice cream!

My mother(who is German)made fried apples like this using butter instead of oil. After frying the apples they were dusted off with powder sugar....so good! Read More

I'm going to stay with my own recipe. The vegetable oil is a very bad idea.. use the butter or if you're health conscious use a light margarine. Instead of pouring maple syrup on at end, just make your own; it's better. Put your apple slices in the pan, put maybe a tablespoon or so of water, add either white (my preference) or brown sugar to your taste.. I usually cover the apples, sprinkle with cinnamon & a little nutmeg to your taste, and at least 2 tablespoons of butter. Cover tightly and cook on low heat until cooked down to your liking. Serve with warm, buttered toast.. my daughters love to put the apples on their toast and take bites of it together. Love this! Read More

I'll stay with my grandmother's old tried and true. She used to make these every Sunday morning with biscuits. The maple syrup does something to the apples that just throws the taste off. Never fry apples in oil! Always fry apples in butter! We also add raisins and dry cranberries. The sweet part is brown sugar cinnamon and nutmeg with just a teaspoon of salt. Read More

Could use a little more ingredients. DO NOT use vegetable oil! Instead use butter. Don't use syrup. It's just full of bad things. Instead try 3 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon. Other then that it was delicious! Read More

My grandmother used to make these for me as a special treat. She sliced them thin and left the skin on. She would have never used oil only butter. No maple syrup either she used sugar nutmeg and cinnamon (as mentioned by another reviewer). Read More

Nice starter recipe. Use unsalted Butter Brown Sugar Pumpkin Pie Spice and a teaspoon of vanilla. Who said apples can't be fattening? Read More

I've made fried apples many times but have NEVER used vegetable oil and don't think I'd even want to try. Butter is way better! But I did enjoy the subtle maple flavor and thought that this was a tasty warm ice cream topping. ( I meant to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top but forgot to for my photo because the ice cream was melting and I had to hurry!) Read More

This was good but nothing spectacular. I didn't even consider using vegetable oil butter is the only way to go for this recipe as far as I'm concerned. I used real maple syrup and I could barely taste the flavor it was just sweet. I think it needs a sprinkle of cinnamon. Read More
