When I was making a divine pork dish I 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, 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. I love roasting veggies and fruits – it add so much flavor. You could vary the recipe a few ways – like using Granny Smith apples in lieu of Gala or add a bit of thyme or rosemary when you roast these lovelies – the possibilities are endless! Heck – for those that love a bit of heat – add a touch of cayenne to the mix and go wild.
Next time you are looking for something outside of the typical roasted potatoes, why not give these Roasted Apples a whirl. I can pretty much guarantee you are going to want to make double – there will be no leftovers.
