This Copycat Cracker Barrel Fried Apples Recipe is a perfect side dish to add to your breakfasts, lunches or dinners. The apples blended with the great cinnamon flavors will have you craving this dish often. I remember my first trip to Cracker Barrel with my hubby (many, many years ago). He told me I was not to leave the restaurant without ordering a side of Fried Apples. He knew even way back then that I would love them! I am a huge fan of Homemade Applesauce, Homemade Apple Butter and everything else I can make with apples. We were needing a side dish with our brunch last week and it seemed like it was time to whip up a Cracker Barrel Copycat to enjoy at home.
