We were driving home from church on Sunday and I was thinking about the egg and ham sandwiches I’d planned to make when I realized that Apple Crisp would be an excellent side dish.
I know Apple Crisp is considered a dessert, but if you eat it with your meal instead of after, it’s a side dish. A sweet, cinnamon spiced side dish.
The only problem is that Apple Crisp takes a while to bake. But you can speed the whole process up by cooking the apples on the stove top.
No ingredient photo this time, because I was in a hurry.
Serving size: 6
- 1 Tbs. butter
- 6-7 small apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup quick oats
- ¼ cup flour
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 3 Tbs. butter, softened
- ½ cup water
- Melt 1 Tbs. butter in a large oven-proof skillet.
- Add apples and cook several minutes over medium heat, stirring often. Cook until apples soften.
- While the apples cook, stir remaining ingredients (except water) together with a fork to make crumbs.
- Add water to apples.
- Stir half of crumbs into apples.
- Top with remaining crumbs.
- Broil in oven to brown top of crisp.
Do you like sweet side dishes like sweet potato casserole, fried apples or apple crisp? Or do you think they should be reserved for dessert?
