Cinnamon Apples with Angus Cheeseburgers
Enjoy the fall with Cinnamon Apples paired with Angus Cheeseburgers from Sandwich Bros of Wisconsin.
This is a sponsored post; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
We are just a week away from the official start to fall, although I started decorating before Labor Day. What can I say, I love fall! In Oklahoma, it’s unusual to have cooler fall temps so early on in September, but we already have had temperatures in the 50s. That means I was able to grab some of my fall sweaters already too. I loved every single minute of it too. I’d say it is time to dust off the boots from winter, then head on out for a family fun day at a local Apple Orchard.
Have you ever gone and picked your own apples? We are so anxious to take our kids this year. I think this year my daughter will really be able to take part in all the fun of picking your own apples, not to mention using them in recipes when we get home too. We live fairly close to an orchard and they have already opened up for apple picking. That means we are ready to go and enjoy some tasty apples. It makes for some inexpensive family fun time too!
Now, once we get home, we are all about the recipes using some of those apples. I’d say my favorite is this Baked Apple Crisp, but since we were in need of lunch, I decided to make some Sautéed Cinnamon Apples. We paired the Cinnamon Apples with Angus Cheeseburgers from Sandwich Bros of Wisconsin to make the perfect little lunch. The kids are always ready for lunchtime and they were super anxious to bite into one of those apples too plus their sandwich.
The Angus Cheeseburgers are served in pita bread with lean, flame broiled 100% Angus Beef topped with a slice of American Cheese. I absolutely love the size of these because they are perfect for little hands. We serve them quite a bit around here for lunchtime and on the go too.
Sautéed Cinnamon Apples
- 2-3 Large Red Apples, Peeled, Sliced and Cored
- 1/4 Cup Butter
- 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
- 2 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
- 1 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
- Melt the butter in a medium-sized skillet on medium-high heat.
- Add in the apples.
- Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Sauté the apples in the mixture until nicely coated, add additional cinnamon if you prefer.
- Serve warm.
Note: This recipe can be done by using cornstarch and water to thicken them up a bit as well; however, I've found that it works just as well without using that.
I paired the sandwiches with the apples and we enjoyed a delicious lunch. We planned out our activities for the fall too that we want to do; of course the first on the list for the kids is the Pumpkin Patch. I’m already planning to take these sandwiches along with us as we head out to the pumpkin patch. They are easy to heat up and pack in a lunch. If the weather is nice, we may even do a little picnic.
What are some of your favorite fall activities? I’d love to hear some more ideas since it is my favorite season!
