This is wonderful!!! I made it for Thanksgiving dinner, and had no leftovers. I did check them at 40 minutes and baked about 30 minutes more. I am not sure if it was because my chunks were to big, or my oven was off. I smells a little like apple pie when baking so that was a plus too. We will be having this one often. I got requests to make it for Christmas dinner too.

This is a delicious and flavorful way to prepare sweet potatoes. The tart apples add a nice flavor to the dish. I used 4 quite large, very tart apples (instead of the 2-3)and did NOT increase the amount of sugar and it was still sweet enough -- and added a little more flavor. A keeper!

This was like having dessert as a side dish. I was surprised that 2 T of butter and brown sugar (I made 1/2 recipe) was so effective at carmelizing all that sweet potato and apple. Delicious! I'm filing this under dessert.
