Bacon Maple Glazed Apple Fritters ... Surely the Most Decadent Way to Get Your Apple a Day.

Bacon Maple Glazed Apple Fritters

This recipe was inspired by an Episode of  Unique Eats where they featured an incredible looking Maple Glazed Brioche Doughnut topped  with Crispy Applewood Bacon.  The awesome looking confection was the brilliant creation of the Nickel Diner in LA. 
All I could do was sigh since two huge obstacles were standing in my way from ever putting their heavenly looking treat in my mouth.  One,  I live on the east coast and two, the elephant in the room ...THE GLUTEN FREE LIFESTYLE I'M FOLLOWING. 
Needless to say I've created something here to vanquish any feelings of deprivation I might have sustained when the episode ended.  Today my friends, I bring you the most indulgent way to have your apple a day… Bacon Maple Glazed Apple Fritters   Honestly, what could be better than than a warm apple fritter bathed in a sweet maple glaze then punctuated with the salty finish of crispy smoked bacon.  I assure you folks, this one takes the cake in the category of decadence. 

Fritter Ingredients:

  • 1 Apple (peeled and diced)
  • 2/3 cup Gluten Free Bisquick* 1egg
  • 1/3 cup Milk
  • 1tsp Sugar
  • ¼ tsp Cinnamon
  • A pinch of Salt

* If you don’t have any GF Bisquick you can substitute :
   1/3 cup of Corn Starch  & 1/3 cup Rice Flour  &  1/2 tsp GF Baking Powder & 1/4 tsp Xanthan gum 

Glaze Ingredients: 

  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup   
  • 1/2 cup Confectioner’s Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • 2 Slices of Bacon (fried, drained, crumbled & set aside)

The Video Tutorial:

  1. In a medium bowl whisk the egg, milk, sugar cinnamon and salt together then stir in the GF Bisquick then the apples.  Now set the batter aside while you make the maple glaze. 
  2. Stir the syrup and vanilla into the powdered sugar until smooth and set aside while you fry the fritters.
  3. You’ll need enough vegetable oil to coat the bottom of your skillet with about 1/4 inch of oil.  Once the skillet is heated to a medium heat, drop heaping tablespoons into the pan and use the back of your spoon to press down any apples that seem to be sticking up too high above the rest of the fritter. 
  4. Cook for about 3-4 minutes on the first side then turn them over and cook for 2-3 minutes on the second side.
  5. Remove them from the pan and place them on paper towels to drain off any excess oil.
  6. Drizzle the glaze oven each fritter. You could even dunk them directly into the bowl if you’d prefer. Sprinkle with crispy bacon and serve.
