Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the coolness of the air, the changing color of the leaves.

Gardeners are harvesting their bounty of fruits and vegetables. Friends are being invited over for "get-togethers" and enjoying each others company.

This is a new recipe that I found and I've tweaked it a bit to fit my taste. When cooking with apples I generally use Jonathan's or Winesap apples. They tend to have a better taste and hold their crunch a bit more.

How to Make Ham, Apple and Sweet Potato Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter a shallow 3 quart casserole and set aside.

  3. Core apples (do not peel) and slice crosswise into 1/2" slices. Arrange sweet potatoes over bottom of prepared casserole. Cover with apple slices. Evenly distribute ham pieces and onion over apples.
  4. In a small bowl, mix cider, melted butter, brown sugar, maple syrup, lemon juice, raisins, cinnamon, and allspice. Spoon mixture evenly over casserole.
  5. TO MAKE TOPPING: In a small bowl, combine cornflakes, melted butter, and paprika. Sprinkle evenly over top of casserole. Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 50 minutes, until top is crispy. Serve right away.
