Grilled Apples a la Mode

Grilled Apples a la Mode

When I was a kid, I remember grilling burgers and hot dogs. Sometimes we’d even grill chicken. But that was about it. 

Now, it seems like people grill just about everything! Pizzas, cake, you name it, and people grill it!

Grilled Apples a la Mode

One of the tastiest (and healthiest) things to grill is fruit. These Grilled Apples a la Mode are super tasty, though maybe not super healthy. The grill caramelizes the sugar in the apples, and the the fruit gets warm and tender crisp. Add a scoop of ice cream, and you have a fantastic summer dessert!


Grilled Apples a la Mode

Servings 2


  • 2 medium cooking apples halved and cored
  • 1 T . butter melted
  • 1 tsp . granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp . ground cinnamon
  • Ice cream


  1. Heat grill pan on medium-low.
  2. Brush inside and outside of apples with butter.
  3. Place cut side down on grill.
  4. Grill for about 5 minutes, or until apple has grill marks and is softened.
  5. Flip over so the apple is cut side up.
  6. Brush with remaining butter, and then sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  7. Continue to cook until apple reaches desired softness. I like my apples tender crisp so I grill for about 10-12 minutes total.
  8. Remove from grill, and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
