This Sweet Potato and Apple Bake is a delicious side dish any time of year, but it’s especially good for Thanksgiving! Don’t let this recipe pass you by, it’s a must-try!
I have been making this Sweet Potato and Apple Bake for years in the Fall months and for Thanksgiving, after receiving it from my friend, Amanda. I have to admit that it took me a while before I tried it because I was so attached to the traditional side dishes my family has always made. So, the first time I made it was alongside my Weeknight Oven Roasted Chicken, and it was wonderful! This is a deliciously sweet side dish that compliments your most savory dishes.
