I was going to make my butternut squash and apple side dish the other night but my squash was pretty sorry looking so I had to think quick and realized I had a sweet potato sitting on the counter and I improvised. I also thought that maple syrup might be nice to use instead of the brown sugar I use with the squash, and I am so glad I tried it this was delish and the kids really loved it!
1-2 apples skinned and chopped
1-2 sweet potatoes skinned and chopped
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp butter
In a baking dish mix together all ingredients and bake at 400 degrees until tender.
