Roasted Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Prep time 20 mins
Bake time 35 mins
Yield Makes 4 servings
This oven-roasted side is flavored with a hint of orange. If you'd like your apples crisp rather than tender, you can bake them for a little less time.

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds sweet potatoes (about 5 medium-size sweet potatoes), peeled
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

How to Make It

  1. Cut peeled sweet potatoes into 1-inch cubes. Cut peeled apples into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

  2. Stir together melted butter, brown sugar, and grated orange rind in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag until blended. Add cubed sweet potatoes and sliced apples. Seal bag, and toss to coat.

  3. Place potato mixture in a single layer in a lightly greased aluminum foil-lined 15- x 10-inch jelly-roll pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  4. Bake at 400° for 30 to 35 minutes or until potatoes and apples are tender and lightly browned.
