Fried Apple Rings
Hot Off The Grill, Pg 242 by Joanna Lund
I've always thought "an apple a day" was good advice, though I suspect that any healthy fruit will keep the doctor away. Here's a delectable way to include yummy-tasting fruit in your daily menus-enjoy the flavor and the health benefits, too!
1 (large-sized) Macintosh apple
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup + 2 teaspoons Splenda Granular
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Plug in and generously spray both sides of double-sided electric contact grill with butter-flavored cooking spray and preheat for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, core apple, then cut in half and cut each half into 4 (1/4 inch) rings. In a large flat bowl, combine lemon juice and 1/4 cup Splenda. Stir apple rings into lemon juice mixture. Evenly arrange coated apple rings on prepared grill. Close lid and grill for 4 to 5 minutes. In a small bowl, combine remaining 2 teaspoons Splenda and cinnamon. For each serving, place 4 rings on a desert plate and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon mixture over top.
