Sauteed Apples With Bacon

This week, my boyfriend and I will be celebrating our anniversary. I chose this week’s recipe in his honor.

He likes bacon.

There are few recipes for bacon, most of the bacon entries are different methods of cooking it.

So I’m going to go with Sautéed Apples With Bacon. This sounds so weird, but it’s really really good. It’s best as a breakfast dish or a snack.

4 large apples
8 slices bacon (make sure they’re raw, not just cooked bacon you steal from the cafeteria)
2 to 4 tbsp sugar

Peel and core the apples, then cut them into ¾ inch wedges.
Cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until brown and crispy.
Remove the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Pour all but 2-3 tablespoons of the grease out of the skillet.
Add the apples to the bacon grease, putting the skillet back over medium heat. Cook the apples until they start to get tender and slightly brown.
Sprinkle the apples with sugar, and arrange them on the plate with the bacon.

Make sure your apples are firm-fleshed. Granny Smiths are always good. My favorite is Golden Delicious, they’re a bit sweeter.
