Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole
2 medium sweet potatoes
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
3 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/2-inch rings
2 tablespoons sugar-free maple syrup
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the sweet potatoes on a piece of aluminum foil and roast until they can be easily pierced with a fork, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly. Trim the ends and pull off the peels; slice into 1/2-inch rounds.
Coat a small (3-1/2-quart) casserole dish with half the butter. In a bowl, stir together the cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. Place ½ of the apple rings in the dish, top with ½ of the sweet potatoes, ½ of the spice mixture and ½ of the syrup. Repeat and dot the top with the remaining butter.
Cover and bake until the apples are very tender, about 45 minutes. Makes 6 servings.
