Cinnamon Sweet Potato and Apple Bake

I know what I’m bringing to Mom’s for Christmas brunch this year!   This cinnamon sweet potato and apple bake turns the humble sweet potato and apple into something a little fancy without any fancy prep work.

Once you pop the cinnamon sweet potato and apple bake in the oven, the smell of cinnamon starts floating through the house.  It smells like Christmas.

It’s no secret that I love sweet potatoes.  You can read how I freeze sweet potatoes here.
