Sweet Potato Skillet Hash

This is a great substitute for the calorie laden sweet potato casserole usually served at the holidays. The sweetness comes from apples, not cups full of sugar. The best part is how quickly you can make and serve this delicious side.

6 cups diced sweet potatoes
2 Honey crisp apples
1/2 cup diced Vidalia onions
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
drizzle of molasses
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon unsalted butter

Chop sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch cubes. In a microwave bowl, add potato cubes and 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and microwave on high for 5 minutes. While the potatoes are in the microwave, heat a cast iron skillet on a medium heat. Add the oil and butter. Remove potatoes from oven and add to pan. Core and cube apples cutting them into 1/2 inch cubes. When the potatoes star to brown, add the apples, onions, and spices. Sauté for several more minutes, until the onions are translucent, and the potatoes are lightly browned. Remove from heat and add to a serving bowl, drizzle with molasses, and enjoy.
