1/2 cup butter, cubed
6 medium unpeeled red apples, sliced
3/4 cup sugar, divided
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Melt butter in a large cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet. Add apples and 1/2 cup sugar; stir to mix well. Cover and cook over low heat for 20 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring frequently.
Add cinnamon and remaining sugar. ( I added another 2 TBL of butter at this point).
Cook and stir over medium-high heat 5-10 minutes longer.

Variation ...
During the Holiday season, Granny would add 1/2 cup of Red Hots and 1/2 cup of water to the butter at the start...

Serve with Pork !

Red Hots! Yep, that's how I remember them.

Love fried apples. They're the perfect side for pork chops

I've been doing a quick version of this for years with butter, cinnamon and a grate of nutmeg as a topping for waffles. Delicious! I never knew they were "Southern Fried".

Andy, I think you need to put a lot of sugar and butter into it to call it "Southern".

When I make sauteed apples, I use roughly one Tbsp of butter for the pan, and half a Tbsp of brown sugar for each apple. A splash of Bourbon doesn't hurt, either. Maybe I should call mine "Kentucky Fried Apples".

another quick and easy apple recipe;

One apple per person, whatever your favorite apple variety is.
Cut the apple in half, from stem to bud. With a melon baller, remove the seed core. Place the apples skin side down in a microwave save casserole dish. Fill the divits created from removing the apple core with onetbs. brown sugar, 1 bs. butter, and 1.2 tsp. vanilla extract. Place in microwave and cook on high for seven minutes The brown sugar, butter, and vanilla combine to make a rich butterscotch sauce that flows over the baked apples. Serve with french vanilla ice cream. Yum.
