Apple fries are a great alternative to regular fries and also double as a dessert for your little ones. The hint of thyme really brings out the great flavor and makes this side dish great for all ages. I usually serve these alongside crispy baked chicken nuggets.
2 firm red apples, peeled, cored and cut into sticks
1 cup apple juice
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1. In a small saucepan on medium heat add apple juice and butter; allow to cook thoroughly until butter has melted. Pre-heat oven to 350F.
2. In a small ovenproof baking dish add apple slices. Sprinkle thyme on top. Pour apple juice over and bake for 15-20 minutes until apples are tender. Remove apple slices and serve.
Yields: 3-4 servings
