This is a recipe I found online & immediately fell in love with. It combines 3 of my favorite fall flavors: sweet potato, apple, & pecan. Definitely more of a dessert than a vegetable, and seriously delicious!
3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 large cooking apples - peeled, cored and cut into 1/4 inch rings
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans
Place sweet potatoes in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook 15-25 minutes, or until tender but firm. Drain, cool and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 7x11 inch baking dish. In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Layer sweet potatoes, brown sugar mixture and apples in the prepared baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, butter and pecans. Sprinkle over the sweet potatoes. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
