Nothing says Fall or Christmas like Escalloped Apples!
It has been a LONG family tradition that we have Escalloped Apples with Ham for Christmas dinner - I've been making these since my kids were babies!
The fragrance of the apples baking makes way for the most delicious, tender and caramelized apple slices you have ever had!
Some recipes call for sauteeing the apples on the stove, and include a healthy amount of butter. But I prefer baking these in the oven slowly, so that the sugar, cinnamon and maple syrup combine into the most delicious caramel sauce you ever had!
We prefer the tartness of Granny Smith apples combined with the perfectly sweet cinnamon, sugar and maple, but if you prefer a sweeter combination, you can always substitute your favorite red baking apple.
Perfect on ham, pork chops or pork tenderloins. For a sweet tooth, you can spoon these tender and sweet Escalloped Apples over ice cream.
And if you are lucky enough to have some leftovers, they are perfect in the morning with fresh hot oatmeal or warmed up and topped with granola. So good!
Hope that you enjoy our holiday tradition as much as we do!
