I created this dish one day when I was in a hurry to get dinner on the table. Sometimes things just work out! This is a fast and easy way to fix sweet potatoes. It is such a pretty dish, too, with so much color, and the nutmeg gives it that special something. So Enjoy!

Ingredients

3
medium sweet potatoes
1
teaspoon nutmeg, or more to taste
1
teaspoon salt, or more to taste
1
teaspoon of paprika
2
tablespoons coconut oil for frying
3
red delicious apples, cored, unpeeled, cut into a wedge slice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
MICROWAVE SWEET POTATOES:
Stick the potatoes with a fork to release steam, and microwave until tender, but not overdone. Set aside to cool for use later.
2
When the potatoes are cool, peel and cut into thick slices like my photo.
3
PREPARE APPLES:
Wash and core apples. Do not peel. Slice into a wedge slice, like my photo.
4
FRY THE POTATOES:
Heat coconut oil in a cast iron dutch oven. When it is medium hot, place the potatoes in the the dutch oven. When the potatoes just start to brown, add the apples. Add salt and nutmeg, stir frequently. Add the paprika (paprika is a browning agent, and will help them to brown.)
5
About the time the potatoes are nice and brown, the apples will be done. Enjoy!

Cook's Tip: This is dish is very good with my Peppered Pork Chops posted on this site. Coconut oil is healthier than olive oil.
