How to Make Bacon Fried Apple Cobbler


3 whole apples, peeled and cut into wedges

3 oz. bacon fat

1 Tbsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. brown sugar

1 pinch salt

1 cup apple cider

Topping Ingredients 

3 slices stale bread (or biscuits)

3 Tbsp. brown sugar

½ Tbsp. cinnamon

2 Tbsp. butter, melted

Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until thoroughly combined.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a cast iron skillet or a heavy-bottomed pan, heat bacon fat. Add apples — the pan should be sizzling at this point. If not, increase heat. Cook until brown and caramelized.

Deglaze pan with apple cider, then add spices and sugar. Reduce heat by ½. (Taste for sweetness.)

Place in an oven-proof pan. Layer topping mixture liberally atop apple mix.

Cook in oven for about 20 minutes or until topping is browned and apples are bubbling.

Allow to cool and serve warm.
