Apples 'n' Onions

Reaching back to the days of *real* DIY, when women cooked over an open fire, and dinosaurs roamed the earth. My mother fondly recalls eating this dish while fighting for oxygen in the primordial ooze.

1/4 lb. bacon
2 yellow onions
3 Granny Smith apples
2 tbsp brown sugar

Fry the bacon and drain well, saving 1 tbsp of the grease. Slice and core the apples, slice and separate the onions.
Sauté the onions in bacon grease until lightly golden, then add the apples. Sprinkle the mix with brown sugar, cover, and cook at a medium heat until the apples are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent burning, but try to leave the pot undisturbed.
Mix with the bacon, remove from heat, and let sit (still covered) for a minute. Serve hot.

It's a lot better than it sounds, I promise. This is a serve-anytime type of dish that goes well with pancakes as well as a meat and potatoes dinner. While filling, it's surprisingly light in taste and doesn't sit like a rock in your stomach. Try adding a little pepper, or cinnamon for variety.
