Thanksgiving Sweet Potato - Apple Bake

4 medium sweet potatoes
3 tart apples
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp butter
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat over to 350F.  Lightly coat a shallow 1-1/2 quart baking dish with nonstick spray.

In a medium saucepan, cover sweet potatoes with water and boil over medium-high heat for 20 minutes of until slightly tender.  Drain and let cool.  Remove and discard the sweet potato skins and cut into 1/2" thick slices.

Peel and core the apples.  Cut crosswise into 1/2" thick rings.  Sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent discolouring.  Arrange half of the sweet potato slices in a layer in the prepared baking dish.  Top with the apples and then the remaining sweet potatoes.

In a small microwaveable bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Microwave on high power for 30 seconds or until melted.  Stir until smooth and blended.  Drizzle over the sweet potato mixture.  Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes or until very tender.

Makes a perfect side dish with turkey.

This was another delicious swap recipe from last year.  Sweet potatoes and apples just belong together.
