With the holidays quickly approaching, it’s time to start thinking about your menu. One of my favorite side dishes I created last year was my Honey Glazed Apple & Sweet Potato Casserole.
I love mashed sweet potatoes around the holidays, and really love them loaded with brown sugar, butter, and marshmallows. This Honey-Sweetened Apple & Sweet Potato Mash is an excellent alternative that is a great way to curb your craving while still being a light dish!
With the addition of the Swanson Cream Starter™, these are just as creamy and delicious as you can imagine. They will fit in nicely with your holiday ham or turkey, stuffing, corn, and rolls.
Have I got your mouth watering yet? I can’t tell you what I’m most excited for around the table – but there’s a good chance you’ll find me head first in the bowl of Honey-Sweetend Apple & Sweet Potato Mash!
They are delicious, you’ve gotta try them!
Honey-Sweetened Apple & Sweet Potato Mash
- 3 lb. sweet potatoes peeled and cut into approx. 1" chunks
- 3 med. apples peeled & cut into approx. 1" chunks
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 c. Swanson Cream Starter™
- 1/4 c. honey
- 1/4 c. chopped pecans
In a large pot, boil peeled sweet potatoes. Cook until potatoes are fork-tender, about 10 minutes.
Add apples, cinnamon and Swanson Cream Starter™. Return to stove top and heat 5 minutes until apples are warmed through; stirring to prevent potatoes from sticking. Remove from heat and add honey.
Using a hand mixer or immersion blender, mash apples and potatoes until smooth. Add vanilla and additional Swanson Cream Starter™ until desired consistency is reached.
