Sauteed Apples with Crushed Pecans

Sometimes I want a topping for Sunday Morning Pancakes that brings a little more umph than syrup. I want something in addition to syrup.

Since we always have a fruit with breakfast (and lunch!), I decided to make that part of the dish instead of just a side.

Sauteed bites of apple with the sweetness of crushed pecans is a great topping for pancakes.

Andrea’s Sauteed Apples with Crushed Pecans

  • 2 Small – Medium Red Apples, chopped
  • 1/2C Crushed Pecans
  • 2TBSP Butter
  • 1tsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2tsp Cinnamon

In a medium sized skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat.  When the butter starts sizzling, add in the apples and cinnamon.  Sautee for about 3 minutes and then add in the crushed pecans.  Sautee for another 3 minutes, remove from heat and serve!

Makes enough topping for 3 servings.

Perfect for pancakes!  The apples are warm but stil crisp since they are not cooked for very long.  Plus you’re starting you day off with a serving of fruit!

This is also great for a topping over ice cream, with some yogurt, or even on top of some oats.  Mix with some granola for some extra crunch!

Have fun guys, and remember, always play with your food! Enjoy!
