4 lbs sweet potatoes
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter, melted
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. black pepper

FOR THE TOPPING:
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 apples, peeled, cored and cut into eighths
3 tbsp. light brown sugar

Recipe Directions for Smashed Sweet Potatoes with Applies

  1. Preheat oven to 375.

  2. Scrub the potatoes, prick them several times with a knife or fork and bake them for 1 hour or until very soft when pierced with a knife.

  3. Remove them from oven and scoop out the insides as soon as they are cool enough to handle. Place the sweet potato meat into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment and add the OJ, cream, butter, brown sugar, spices, salt and pepper. Mix together until combined but not smooth and pour into a baking dish.

  4. For the topping, melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Add the apple wedges and brown sugar and cook for about 5-10 minutes, until lightly browned on all sides. Place on top of the sweet potatoes.
