Are you looking for an easy and delicious side dish? Try Red Hots baked apples. This recipe will quickly become a family favorite recipe.

When I was growing up, my dad made red hots baked apples.

He learned how to make them from his great-aunt who raised my grandmother and was a beloved grandmother to my dad.

This is a super simple side dish that is very tasty.


Ingredients

  • Apples – I used Fuji apples but Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, and Rome are other good choices.
  • Red Hots
  • Water – Optional


Peel and slice apples and place in a greased baking dish and top with Red Hots. Neither Mama nor I could remember if Daddy added water to the apples.


The first time I made this dish, I added 1 cup of water and it resulted in apples this a light touch of cinnamon flavor. The second time I made them, I used 1/2 cup of water and the apples were perfect. If you want your apples super hot and cinnamony, use no water.


Bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees, stirring the dish a few times to make sure the Red Hots melt evenly.

I loved this dish growing up and am glad that I finally made it to enjoy.
