Made with just three ingredients, these simple Sauteed Apples pair perfectly with oatmeal, pancakes, and yogurt, as well as savory mains like pork and chicken.
All you need to make this easy side dish or snack is apples, butter or neutral oil, and cinnamon. They are totally sweet enough without adding any extra sugar!
You can use any type of apple you have or like, though tart cooking apples (like Granny Smith or Pink Lady) soften nicely without falling apart too quickly.
Warm the butter or oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Chop the apples and add to the skillet.
Stir to coat and cook for 10 minutes or until soft when poked with a fork. If you use apples that are softer when eaten fresh (like Gala), they may cook a little faster.
Stir in the cinnamon and serve. Serve warm or cold, plain or over yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, chicken, pork, or another favorite meal.
