  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir apples, onion, brown sugar, and cinnamon in the melted butter until onions are translucent and sauce is slightly reduced, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Measurements are broad. Adjust according to size of apples. I find it unnecessary to add water. May add cinnamon if you like.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
