My Final Recipe…Finally!

I’m never posting a recipe again!

That’s probably not true, but that’s how I feel this morning.  I woke up today and thought, Ahhhhhh!  Friday!!  ALREADY!

This recipe is in honor of fall.  It’s a perfect side dish for Thanksgiving.  I’ve been making it for years, and most people like it.  It’s also easy.


* Makes 8 Side-Dish Servings

3 lbs. yams, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces; 1lb Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces; 2 med. onions, cut into 1-inch wedges; 4 tablespoons butter; 1/4 cup honey; 1 teaspoon salt; 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg; 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Since I’m not good with measuring, I usually have more apples, yams, and onions than necessary, so I add more of the other ingredients.

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl to combine.  Transfer to a baking dish and bake at 350 degrees, stirring occasionally, until yams are tender – about 1 hour.  Increase oven to 500 degrees and bake until liquid evaporates and yams are browned – 10 to 15 min.  Serve hot.

I got this recipe from a magazine several years ago and it’s been a Thanksgiving staple ever since.  Wish I remembered which magazine, but I do not.

If you have a recipe to contribute, leave your link in the comments please.

Have a great weekend!  My town is trick-or-treating tonight, so I am gearing up for the candy grabbers.  Such fun!!

    Sigh. We will be living on microwavable things for at least a week and a half.

    Have missed you so much while in the writing cave!!!

    Your recipe looks yummy. It’s so nice your town is trick or treating tonight. Ours always takes place on the day. I hate that when it’s on a Sunday.
    You just tell LeAnn, I’m meeting you first!
