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

Yummy! I had hoped the sauce would end a little thicker, but overall delicious!

I created my own variation of this recipe and used a crunchy granola topping. It was a hit! From now on, it will be a part of my Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. Thank you!
