Apple Sweet Potato Bake Recipe

Grandmother always served sweet potatoes and apples with pork, so I know she'd approve of this dish I created to combine the two.—Audrey Thibodeau, Gilbert, Arizona

8 Servings
Prep: 15 min.
Bake: 30 min.

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.
