This is a super simple recipe that I make as a sweet, easy side dish. It tastes a LOT like apple pie... but even healthier!

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • ¼ cup white sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground allspice

  • 1 Granny Smith apple - peeled, cored and sliced

  • cup milk

Directions

  1. Place the sweet potato in a medium saucepan and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.

  2. Melt butter over low heat in a small saucepan. Mix in the sugar, cinnamon and allspice. Add the apple slices, cover, and let simmer for 5 minutes, or until the apples are tender. Mix the apple mixture into the drained sweet potatoes along with the milk. Mix well using an electric mixer or just a fork until potatoes are mashed.

Note

As a variation, you can mix in cloves or nutmeg. This is also delicious topped with brown sugar and pecans.
