Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by BeachGirl

This was a huge success at Thanksgiving Dinner...not one bite left! Apples give these sweet potatoes a new twist! A nice company dish that can be prepared a day ahead, refrigerated, and baked just before serving. Cooking time does not include pre-baking sweet potatoes.

Excellent recipe - Even someone that does not care for sweet Potatoes had 2 helpings. I did cut back on the sugar & honey to 1/4 cup of each. I got the casserole ready in the AM and put it in the oven 40 minutes before dinner - I served it with a boiled ham, Asparagus & baked potatoes This is a keeper Thanks Beachgirl
