Recently, I was making a divine pork dish and could not, for the life of me, figure out what would be a great side that would accent the pork but not steal the show – kinda like a “Robin” to the main entree’s “Batman”.
I had one of my culinary “aha” moments when I happened to look at the fruit basket and saw some gorgeous apples just sitting there waiting for some attention. Thankfully, there’s always Ms. Martha to the rescue with a recipe for Roasted Apples. A quick slice with my favorite apple slicer/corer (I seriously love this Dial A Slice Apple Slicer that I discovered at William Sonoma), a quick toss with some warm cinnamon and a little sugar, followed by a sauna in the oven and these apples were ready to accept their Supporting Side Dish Award.
Next time you are looking for something outside of the typical roasted potatoes, why not give these apples a whirl. I can pretty much guarantee you are going to want to make double – there will be no leftovers.
- 3 Apples (I used Gala)
- 1/8 teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons of Sugar
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Core and slice the apples into 8ths.
- Toss the apples with the cinnamon and sugar.
- Place the spiced sugared apples on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes.
- About halfway through, toss the apples.
