Roasted Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

A sweet side for that perfect savory entree!

Fall is here, meaning it’s time for all things orange: pumpkin, squash, and of course, sweet potatoes. And while pumpkin spice may steal the show this season, we think sweet potatoes are the real heroes of fall. Naturally sweet, these veggies make a healthy side taste like dessert. These Roasted Apple Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes combine the best flavors fall has to offer, so if you’re looking for a side that will send everyone back for seconds this year, look no further. Warm roasted apples and cinnamon make this dish fragrant and flavorful, while sweet potatoes complete the hearty, home-cooked side dish. Meanwhile, a touch of pure maple syrup adds yet another classic fall flavor to this can’t-miss side. Pair it with a savory entree, like our Herb Rubbed Turkey, to really bring out the best in this dish. (Or go ahead and have some for dessert, we won’t tell!)

    1. Hi, Jill. We recommend using Granny Smith apples for baking since they are sturdy and keep their shape along with adding delicious flavor to the recipe. Other options are Jonathan or Jonagold; Cortland; Braeburn; or Honeycrisp. Also, honey can be used as a substitute for maple syrup.
