It’s That Time of Year

Autumn is the time for certain dishes and this is one of them. With apples, sweet potatoes and spices like cinnamon and allspice, it is difficult not to FALL in love with this dish…..

(OK bad joke, but it worked for me!)

I’m not really sure if this is a side dish or a dessert. I think it really can masquerade as either.

A short list of ingredients.

I first pre-cooked the sweet potatoes in the microwave. Then layer the apples and potatoes.

Brown sugar and butter.


And eat!

Apple Sweet Potato Bake

Prep Time: 15 min | Cook Time: 30 min | Makes: 8


  • 3 cups sliced peeled cooked sweet potatoes
  • 3 cups sliced peeled tart apples (about 2 large)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter


In a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish, layer half of the sweet potatoes and apples. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, salt and pepper; sprinkle half over apples. Dot with half of the butter. Repeat layers.

Cover and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Baste with pan juices. Bake, uncovered, 15 minutes longer or until apples are tender. Yield: 8 servings.

    Looks like a dessert. Shelly’s idea of serving it as part of breakfast is a good idea.
