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!"

    O my! That sounds delish! I just discovered mashed sweet potatoes with coconut milk, a dab of brown sugar, and cinnamon. O goodness! I thought I needed a smoke after devouring it! *LOL* Thanks for sharing~ emoticon BB~

    Looks amazingly simple- I will be trying this!
    (I eat a sweet potato almost every day- cook up a batch (covered with a bit of water for an hour in the oven until VERY soft) and keep them in the fridge- I prefer them cold with just a dash of cinnamon-sugar).

    yummy. I wasn't planning to make anything for the work pot-luck (I'm contributing to the person buying the turkey & brisket) - but this sounds easy & good!

    I've eaten sweet potatoes all my life, but never with added sugar or's a texture thing with me. I have served this on many Thanksgiving buffets and people always ask for the recipe. The tart of the apple and the sweet of the potato...heaven on a fork!! Thanks for sharing!

    Yum. This is very similar to the recipe I'm making next week from the Everyday Happy Herbivore cookbook next week.

    Have you put this in the calorie tracker thing on SparkRecipes? I'll have to see if this recipe is there. I don't normally eat sweet potatoes either but I'm willing to give this one a try.

    I like roasted sweet potatoes - and I like them cold too, weird, but that's how my dad used to eat them. But your recipe sounds delicious. I will have to try it!!

    im just happy with a simple half a sweet potato in the micro 5 mins. and a little healthy heart spread and a tablespoon of sour cream.. I would be to tempted to eat a lot of something that took a lot of time to prepare.
