A Fall Recipe

Sweet Potato Bake

3 medium sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/4″ discs with skin on

3 cooking apples (You want something firmly tart), sliced to about 1/4 inches per slice

1 small onion, sliced into rings butter salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350. In a 3 qt baking dish, layer 1/2 the sweet potatoes across the bottom, covering the bottom of the dish. Add a layer of 1/2 the apples, and finish with 1/2 the onions. Add a couple of pats of butter and a sprinkle of salt, then repeat layers. Add some walnuts if desired.

Bake for ~45 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender.

This is a favorite fall dish of mine. A lot of people put brown sugar on sweet potatoes, but don’t even try it with this dish. It’d make it cloyingly sweet. This goes especially well with pork and poultry dishes.
