Sweet Potato and Cinnamon-Apple Bake


Quick and easy side that is surprisingly flavorful. I use Honeycrisp apples for this dish, although other varieties will work too.

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 2 large Honeycrisp apples, diced

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • cup water, or as needed

  • 2 tablespoons butter, diced


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).

  2. Place diced apples and sweet potatoes in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic loaf pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over apple mixture; add enough water to leave 1/2-inch water in bottom of pan.

  3. Cook in microwave until the potatoes have softened are easily pierced with a fork, about 8 minutes; drain. Dot apple mixture with butter.

  4. Bake in preheated oven until potatoes and apples are completely softened, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Cook times may vary by microwave power and desired outcome. I wanted the dish a bit crispier but my husband said not to change a thing.
