Fried Apples

We are having Pork Roast for dinner tonight. We love applesauce or these Fried Apples with our pork. These are similar to the ones that you get in restaurants such as Cracker Barrel, but I "healthified" them a bit. It also helps add a fruit to our diet. You need lots of fresh fruits and veggies to keep you healthy.
Our full dinner menu is:

Pork Roast with Fried Apples
Oven Roasted Potatoes and
Green Beans

Here is how I did my apples:

6 medium apples, sliced thinly, as for a pie (you can peel or not, peel is more fiber)
3 tbs Splenda Brown Sugar Blend (if not watching your sugar, use regular brown sugar)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons Light margarine (Not watching fats? Use Butter)

Melt margarine in large skillet over medium heat.
Add apples. Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. (I used Granny Smith)
Stir until apples are blended with sugar/cinnamon.and nutmeg.
Cover and cook for approx 15-20 minutes, frequently stirring gently.
Serve them warm, right on the pork chop or pork roast. Or on the side, its your plate, its your choice.
They also double for a dessert dish served over vanilla ice cream. Great added flavor to Sugar Free Fat Free ice cream.
