Oven-Fried Apples

I host a breakfast for ladies of my church during the holidays, and I often make this recipe to serve as a side dish. It's also good for topping waffles or ice cream.

    Tara Bess, Honey Crisp apples are only meant to be eaten raw, not for baking at all. Too much water content -- makes baked goods wet/soupy and pretty well disintegrate quickly when cooked. Granny Smith work best, also Northern Spy or whatever apple you would normally use in apple pie.

    I served this with Christmas Dinner this year 2012. My whole family enjoyed the apples but I too thought it was too soupy. I used 2 types of apples and left the skins on, Granny Smith and Honey Crisp. If the liquid had been a little like a thin syrup I think it would have been more pleasing to the eye and palet. I will do that the next time!

    The flavor of this dish is excellent. It was like taking a bite out of Christmas however it was way too soupy for me. I am not sure if I did something wrong or not but it was like soup with chunks of apples. I will definately try this again after I ask around to see how I can fix that problem. This recipe is worth a try for anyone who likes apples.
