Roasted sweet flavors with Lemon-Sage dressing

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Apple
Sweet and tender roasted sweet potatoes with lemony, sweet and tart pan roasted apples were like many holiday flavors singing on my palate. This delicious sweet side dish is as simple as it looks and as delicious as it sounds. I love to pair this with roasted or grilled lamb.

If you are already planning to roast lamb or turkey, this side dish will cook at same temperature, so you can roast both dishes at the same time and save yourself on time and energy. I adapted this recipe from Fine Cooking Magazine - Roasting Issue and tweaked it per my taste and liking. Original recipe calls for 2 tbsp of butter and maple syrup but I have used 1 tbsp butter and honey instead of maple. This recipe s very forgiving, so get creative, use maple instead of honey or sweet mayor lemons instead of regular lemons and enjoy!!
