  • Reviews

  • “loved this side dish. would never have thought to put the two together. didn’t need the brown sugar, my onion was sweet and i used a Gala apple. i also didn’t have bacon to crumble but had bacon grease to fry in, next time i will have some to crumble over, i think it will make an already wonderful dish even better.”

  • “I loved the combination of the apples and the onions — but I deviated a bit and left out the bacon bits. Now I think it would’ve been so much better! I still fried in bacon fat, and served it with steak. It was a much healthier alternative to, say, mashed potatoes!”

  • “This was a great accompaniment to a rolled pork loin roast.I used brown sugar as my apples were a bit tart, as suggested.This is a keeper, thank you:)”

  • “Served this with roast pork, cole slaw and cornbread.So good!!!!!!!”

  • “I used this recipe forstuffed pork chops and my family just loved it.They requested that the next time make more!”
