Cooked Apples and Pancakes Hero It is a Keeper

One of my favorite meals growing up was what my grandma called Hot Apples and Biscuits. She was from West Virginia and I guess they make a lot of breakfast type meals for dinner.

My grandma used to live with us when I was young and she would make me dinner and take care of me when my parents weren’t home. There were a few things I would request when ever she was watching me. One was silver dollar pancakes and the other was Hot Apples and Biscuits.

She would saute the cored and sliced apples in butter and brown sugar into a nice thick sauce. Then serve it with biscuits and sausage.

Cooked Apples in Skillet

I like to make my apples and serve them with pancakes. They make a great topping on the pancakes and you can add some whipped cream and there is no need for syrup with this recipe. Last month I made an apple pie and won a contest at our church, so this is the perfect time of year for anything apple.

They are really delicious, we actually had them for dinner this weekend. It is really a quick and easy meal. I wanted to have either sausage or bacon with them, but I was out, and it was 117 degrees, so I was trying to save the oven from being turned on, that’s why we use an electric griddle for my pancakes.  If you would like to try my Red Velvet Pancakes you get try this recipe.
