Sweet Potato and Apple Gratin

Becky Luigart-Stayner; Jen Rotenstreich
Yield 8 servings
Sweet but not overly so, this sweet potato and apple side dish is a delicious accompaniment to a holiday meal. Let the casserole stand for 10 minutes after baking so the juices can thicken.

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 small sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced (about 2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Combine apples and lemon juice in a large bowl. Add the sweet potatoes and the next 4 ingredients (sweet potatoes through pepper). Place the sweet potato mixture in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes, stirring after 25 minutes.

  3. Place bread in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs form to measure 1 cup. Combine breadcrumbs, oil, and nutmeg; sprinkle over the sweet potato mixture. Bake for an additional 15 minutes or until golden. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
