"I loved Little House on the Prairie, and Almanzo's favorite dish was fried apples 'n onions. Fascinated, I made this recipe up (lol, not complicated) and have loved the combination!"

Beyond tickled that someone submitted this recipe--I have been a fan of Laura Ingalls books since I first started to read. I made this last night for a quick dinner. I used Granny Smith apples for a hint of tartness, used a little more butter, brown sugar and cinnamon (my apples and onion were a bit on the larger side) and served this with a quality cooked kielbasa. NO leftovers. We ate every single bite.
So good ! I love how they paired apples and onions ! Who knew it would come out so good ? I actually added some turmeric, which kicked things up a notch !
Farmer Boy has always been my favorite of the Little House books. Years ago I made this for my kids--without a recipe to follow from the book, and because I always use apples in my Stuffing, I went with typical stuffing seasonings, Sage being a key player of flavor. It was pretty good eating!
I tried this sweet and spicy version today and love it! We enjoy the health benefits of cinnamon, so I added 1/4 tsp of cinnamon, and cut the sugar down to 2 TBLS. I used Macintosh apples. And a dash of salt.
This is easy, and I love this combination of onions and apples.
I took Sarah Jo's tip and sautéed chopped kolbassa in with the onions and apples. I added some chicken stock to the skillet otherwise the brown sugar will burn and stick to the pan. It was so easy but such tasty comfort food. Will make this again for sure, it also would be good to take for pot lucks. Thanks for posting the recipe
