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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

Very good simple and quick. It is a perfect healthy side dish any time but you could definitely play with the spices in the fall. My 2-yr-old wouldn't touch it but I think she will if she sees it enough. It's def in the rotation! Read More

Really good. My cooking time was much longer than that suggested but I had guessed it would be that way so was prepared for it. It was so nice to find a sweet potato recipe that didn't ask for any sugar. Even my picky 4 year old enjoyed it. Read More

Apples and sweet potatos are so good together. I sliced the apples to make pretty rings. Instead of microwaving i baked mine. It took about 45 minutes but oh so worth it. Read More

Great and easy. This will be repeated. I followed the ingredients but didn t measure. Hardest part of the dish was peeling and cutting the sweet potatoes. Since they cook slower than the apples I may nuke them alone for a few to make chopping easier Read More
