Bacon Fried Apples
I figured for the first recipe on the food blog of Denise would be one I legitimately came up with on my own entirely.
Out of desperation comes bacon fried apples. :)
This is a ratio recipe that is best served warm : 1 apple to 4 whole pieces of bacon
This serves 2 people, as a side, and it's awesome.
Cutting bacon in half is something my other did and it just makes sense. If you're cooking in a skillet whole pieces just don't fit well, and even though I made this on a griddle (desperation, remember?) half pieces were still a better fit. But the package with scissors, its so simple!
Start with cooking your bacon most of they way, and keep the grease. While the bacon is cooking slice the apple, don't peel it. You should get about 16-20 slices from one apple.Gala apples are my favorite, and since they are sweet, pairing them with bacon is perfect.
When the bacon has about 2 minutes left throw the apples in with it and make sure they are fleshy side down in the grease from the bacon. After about a minute flip them and let the other side brown.
Frying them with the bacon allows the bacon to absorb some of the sweet juices and the apples to get warm and salty. In heaven everything is a perfect balance of sweet and salty. God serves this on Saturday mornings.
After both sides of the apple are brown (they will be slightly soggy) server together.
I put syrup on mine, but that's because I'm in love with syrup. It didn't need it. Happy breakfast!
