Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and Apples
Saturday, November 23, 2013
For years, I wouldn't eat sweet potatoes. With all the marshmallow, butter and sugar, they were just "YUCKY!"
Then I found this recipe, and discovered that sweet potatoes could be delicious (and healthful, too!)
four sweet potatoes (about 4 pounds)
four apples (about 1.5 pounds) cooking apples like Granny Smith or Rome Beauty are best
1/2 cup pecan halves or pieces
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Peel the sweet potatoes and cut into round slices about 1/2 inch thick. Peel the apples, core and cut into rings or slices about 1/2 inch thick.
Layer all ingredients in a casserole or baking pan...potato, apple, sprinkling of nuts, sprinkling of nutmeg, and repeat.
Put on the lid or cover tightly with foil. Place in a preheated oven. Bake at 350 for 45 to 60 minutes.
Makes 12 servings. These reheat easily in a microwave, too.
Now I eat sweet potatoes often! "YUM!"
