Sweet Potato - Apple Bake

An easy, healthier alternative to a traditional mashed sweet potato casserole that's simple enough to do as a side dish for a weeknight dinner or you could dress it up for a holiday dinner.
Sweet Potato - Apple Bake
(Serves 4)

1-2 apples, diced in large chunks
2-3 sweet potatos, diced in large chunks
1/4 cup of orange juice
1 T lemon juice
2 T brown sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray. Peel and core apples, dice into large bite size peices. Toss gently with lemon juice. Peel sweet potatos and cut in half. Cut each half in half again and slice into rounds approximately 1/2" thick. You want to keep the pieces consistently sized so they cook the same. Add to apples and add brown sugar, orange juice and nutmeg and toss to evenly coat. Bake for approximately 1 hour until potatos are tender. Stir about half way through cook time to keep the top from drying out.

To dress this up, any of the following make great additions: golden raisins, dried cranberries, butternut squash, walnuts or pecans.
