Apple and Bacon Saute

 I wanted a side dish to go with a dinner that I was having with friends. I had plenty of apples, but not much time. I also wanted something other than applesauce. I decided to saute apples with bacon. It was a big hit. The smokiness of the bacon worked great with the tart apples. We had it with roasted chicken, but I could see this dish pairing nicely with a pork roast, too.

Apples with Bacon

6 slices thick-cut bacon

7 large apples, peeled, cored and sliced – I used tart apples

1/3 c. brown sugar, or to taste

salt and pepper to taste

hot pepper sauce to taste

Chop bacon and cook in skillet until crisp. Spoon out some of the fat from the pan- leave a couple of tablespoonfuls in the pan. Add apples to the bacon in the skillet and cook over high heat, stirring often, until apples are tender and have started to caramelize. Add sugar and seasonings and heat through. Serves 4-6.
