Sauteed Apples & Sweet Potatoes

Sauteed Apples & Sweet Potatoes on

Four ingredients make a whole lotta magic when it comes to this easy and healthy side dish. Sautéed apples and sweet potatoes go together like peas and carrots… just a little sweeter, is all. While this recipe makes a convenient cook-ahead side dish for everything from weeknight dinners to a holiday spread, it is equally awesome to have for a warm breakfast with a Maple Walnut Scotch Egg and cup of butter coffee.

Sauteed Apples & Sweet Potatoes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: side
Serves: 4
  • 1 large sweet potato (about a pound)
  • 2 medium apples (I like Honeycrisp)
  • 2 tablespoons of grass-fed butter or ghee (I like this brand)
  • pinch of salt (sea or kosher is best)
  • Optional: pinch of cinnamon, ¼ cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  1. Warm a large skillet to medium temperature and melt in the butter or ghee.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into a large dice.
  3. Place the sweet potatoes into the warmed pan and melted butter/ghee. Sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
  4. While the sweet potatoes soften, peel and dice the apple to match the size of the diced sweet potato.
  5. After the sweet potatoes have cooked for about 10 minutes add the apples. The potatoes take much longer to cook and need the head start.
  6. Stir the ingredients together, coating everything in the browning butter. Cook for an additional 8 to 10 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are cooked through; stir often.
  7. If using the cinnamon and/or chopped nuts, add them to the pan and mix prior to serving.

    This would be good with bacon. But, then again pretty much everything is good with bacon. Today I made this with cinnamon, nutmeg, craisins and almonds. Super yum. Thanks!

    Made this recipe last night and added some crumbled sweet and hot sausage to it. So good! Thank you so much for sharing.
