Excellent, IF you tweak a bit. The combination of sweet potatoes and apples is sublime. Golden Delicious is the best type to use since it's texture and firmness is similar to the Sweet Potato. Definitely BAKE your potoates first (locks in the sweetness and vitamins!), cool, then slice. I also sliced my apples, then cut again into bite size pieces and it cooked perfectly. No need to layer the sugar in between. Just melt the butter (1/2 c. is enough)& spices and drizzle over the top. Good dish to make ahead of time and put into the fridge. Just let it sit at room temp. for a few hours before baking and you're good to go. This is such a nice change from the marshamallow topping and so much lighter! I always get raves and requests for this dish, which I've been making for the past 5 yrs. Try it!
Used a combo of suggestions and it came out perfect. Try this: Boil the potatoes in skins until fork tender about 20 minutes. Cool peel and slice into greased casserole dish. Using only 1/2 cup of brown sugar total mix remaining ingredients except apples and butter. Top potatoes with 1/3 sugar mixture. Mix apples (1/4 inch slices cut into 8 pieces each) with the remaining sugar mix spread over potatoes. Drizzle the melted butter over the top. Bake for 20 min stir gently and drizzle with 1 Tablespoon melted butter if mixture seems dry. cook 15-20 minutes more. Great flavor combo!
The potatoes need to be cooked very soft before baking. I left them firmer than they needed to be since I thought they would soften up a little more while baking but they didn't. Other than that the dish was a hit.
This is the second year making this tasty dish. I find that I have to cook it for about an hour on 350 degrees. I adjust the time and oven temperature as needed. I know it's done when it begins to brown. I use golden delicious apples. This meal is so easy to prepare inexpensive and tastes so good!!
Excellent!! We forgot to peel the apples and my young "assistant" sliced them RATHER thick but it all still worked fine. I would be sure to slice the apples very thin next time. Also I might even use "half moons" of apple instead of "rings" to make serving easier.
Took this casserole for Christmas dinner and got rave reviews! The only problem I had was the topping didn't say whether to melt the butter or cut it in so I cut it in. The apples looked like they were drying out while cooking so I added a little butter to the top during the cooking. Next time I will melt the butter and see how that works. Definitely a keeper! I used Granny Smith Apples and everyone thought they had a wonderful taste.
found this last year at my inlaws place and everyone loved it when we made it. Make it fairly regularly and the only part that is a problem is the caramelized sauce. I find it better NOT to put in the flour as it seems to make the sugar clump gloopily
