Cinnamon Apples

Even though apples are a favorite with pork chops, this simple side can also be enjoyed with toast for breakfast or try it as a dessert.

Serves 4-6
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 15 minutes


  • 4 apples, peeled and sliced; golden delicious, gala or granny smith
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons apple juice (you could use water but apple juice provides more flavor)
  • 1 tablespoon butter


    Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Toss apples with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples to the skillet. Add apple juice. Cover and cook until apples are tender. Serve with toast, atop cake, or as a side with pork chops.
