Roasted Apples and Sweet Potatoes

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.

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


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.
