What I Eat

Ham and Sauteed Apples

Serves: 1

1 apple, preferably Braeburn
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1-1.5 oz. ham steak*

*I like to use a fully cooked hickory smoked ham steak. According to the package directions, it can be heated up in the microwave in a covered dish with 1/4 cup water for 4 minutes. If your grocery store doesn’t sell that, any cooked ham will work.

Wash, peel, and chop apple. Melt butter in a skillet over medium-low to medium heat. Add apple, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cook until apples are soft, stirring frequently to prevent burning. Heat ham. When it is time to eat, divide the apple mixture into thirds. Put one third on your plate with the ham. Put the other two thirds in two airtight containers and store in the refrigerator. You can heat these up in the microwave later to have as a snack or a side with a different meal. Have the ham and apples with a glass of water.
