Ah…Fall…apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin…the list goes on and on! I will definitely miss the warm weather, but oh how I love to cook with Fall inspired flavors! These Cinnamon Waffles with Fried Apples bring together two delicious flavors!

Growing up, quite often, my Mom would fry apples. Well, I suppose they weren’t really fried, but more like sauteed, in butter and sprinkled with cinnamon.

For the apple topping, I did just how I remember my Mom making them, but with a little extra flavoring…maple syrup! It gave the apples a nice flavor and also enhanced the cinnamon and allspice.

Cinnamon Waffles with Fried Apples = perfect breakfast, but hearty enough for dinner too!
