Sausage Apple Sweet Potato Bake

Updated on August 8, 2007

This Sausage Apple Sweet Potato bake is a unique and delicious meal that provides lots of healthy foods for your family to enjoy. Having a child with food allergies, I am always on the look out for new recipes. Specifically ones that do not contain dairy, eggs or beef. I have to admit it is hard at times. When I found this recipe in the More With Less cookbook by Doris Janzen Longacre I knew we had to try it. It quickly became a favorite of ours.


1 pound ground sausage

2 medium raw sweet potatoes

3 medium apples

2 tablespoons sugar

1 tablespoon flour

1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup water


Brown the sausage in a skillet, breaking up the pieces as it browns. Drain off the excess fat when it is finished. While the sausage is browning, peel and slice the sweet potatoes and the apples. Arrange in a 2 quart casserole dish sweet potatoes on the bottom, then the apples and finally the sausage.

In a small bowl combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and water, mixing well. Pour over the the sausage. Cover with tinfoil and bake at 375 for 50-60 minutes, or until potatoes and apples are tender. This dish goes well with rolls and salad.

Sausage Apple Sweet Potato bake does require some prep work, but then you have a whole hour to relax while it is cooking. Sweet potatoes are loaded with vitamins and nutrients and I am always trying to get my kids to eat more of them. It works with this recipe.

We frequently have this dish in the fall when both apples and sweet potatoes are in season. Using in season produce is a great way to keep your grocery budget as low as possible. If I were to have this dish in the spring, I would pay triple what I would pay in the fall for the apples and sweet potatoes. Typing this up makes me long for fall, when the weather will be perfect and the price will be right for me to make this wonderful recipe.

      I had that cookbook for years and it disappeared when we moved. I made this recipe ages ago and forgot where I had found it. Thanks for posting this so I could fix it again!
