Apples ‘n Onions

You could count on one hand the number of times I have eaten apples ‘n onions (if I could remember), but I recently found myself craving some. I have been in the mood for apples lately, but that’s natural in the fall. If you’ve been in an apple mood, I thought you might like trying this dish. It’s very easy to prepare and is naturally gluten-free.

Apples 'n Onions
Recipe type: Side Dish
  • Yellow onion, sliced
  • Apple, cored and sliced
  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar (optional)
  1. In a large skillet, saute onion and apple slices in melted butter until tender.
  2. If desired, sprinkle with brown sugar, cover, and let steam for a few minutes.
  3. Serve immediately.


My craving didn’t include brown sugar so I went without. Apparently there are two camps on this issue. The ones who would never eat it with brown sugar, and the ones who will only eat it with brown sugar. Personally, I could see eating it either way.

Do you eat apples ‘n onions, and if so, do you eat it with brown sugar or not?

    I'm pretty sure I've never even heard of apples and onions as a dish before. But, I'm also pretty sure I'd be in the "only with brown sugar" camp. 😉

    Wow, I've never had this combo before but is sounds good. Thank you for sharing it on Friday Foodie Fix.

      love this dish, never use brown sugar though. I usually only make it around the holidays, slice it all very thin and use it as a bed for the turkey or whatever meat we are serving, like pork…
