Griddle-Fried Caramel Apple Sliders Intro: Gather your family and friends for some griddle-fried caramel apple sliders. Sweet caramel and tart apples come together on a golden-brown griddle for a flavor you won’t soon forget. Enjoy with sides like vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or caramel sauce for a truly special treat. Alternative flavors: For a more savory take on this dish, try griddle-fried bacon and apple sliders with a hint of honey. For a vegan option, try pan-fried portobello mushrooms and caramelized apples.

– 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
– 1/4 cup brown sugar
– 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
– 6 tablespoons butter
– 12 slider buns, cut in half and toasted
– 1/2 cup caramel sauce

1. In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined.
2. Heat a griddle or large skillet over medium-high heat and melt the butter.
3. Slice the apples into thin slices and coat them in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
4. Place the coated apples onto the heated griddle or skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes, flipping once.
5. Assemble the sliders by layering the toasted buns with caramelized apples, extra cinnamon-sugar mixture, and caramel sauce.

Helpful Hack: For a shortcut, substitute the cinnamon-sugar mix with jarred caramel sauce.

Tips & Suggestions:
– Make sure to pre-toast the buns for a crisp and flavorful slider.
– For a creamy accompaniment, melt 6 tablespoons of cream cheese and mix in with the cinnamon-sugar mixture to make a caramel-spiced cream cheese spread.
– Serve the sliders with your favorite choice of sides like vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, and caramel sauce.
– If you want to make the sliders more filling, add crumbled bacon or diced walnuts.
– Enjoy these slides as a dessert, or for a sweet breakfast treat.
