Honey Roasted Apples and Potatoes before cooking


  • Root Veggies: Other root vegetables like turnips, parsnips, or rutabagas would taste delicious. You can also swap in sweet potatoes. Test your swap after 30 minutes of baking so you don’t overcook.
  • Apples: Use other baking apples like Granny Smith apples, Gala apples, Honeycrisp apples, or Jonagold apples. Avoid using softer apples like Red Delicious.
  • Spices: You can substitute Pumpkin Pie Spice for the spices in this recipe or add spices like cloves, cardamom, or nutmeg.
  • Bourbon: If you don’t want to cook with bourbon, substitute 1 tablespoon vanilla mixed with 1/4 cup sparkling apple cider. You can use other sparkling juices like cranberry or grape too.
  • Maple Syrup: Try maple syrup or corn syrup instead of the honey. If you use dark corn syrup, reduce the brown sugar to 1/3 cup.
  • Nuts: Instead of chopped pecans, you can use toasted almonds, walnuts, or hazelnuts as your crunchy topping. You could also use granola clusters.

  1. my mother has been eating better than the rest of us for quite some time and this fall she has a lot of apple left over from the sider she just caned and asked me if i had any ideas. “Apples and potatoes.” I said. she seemed intrigued with her eyes. she followed with. “hmm, look it up that sounds good.”
    You were the first sight i looked on and it seemed really buzar and wonderful so i gave it a try. we both tried it and were very satisfied. it is crazy how the pepper tied it all together. we will have it again.

  2. In the variations, you mention Bourbon (and a substitute), but I don’t see Bourbon mentioned in the recipe. How much to use and when do you add it to the dish? Thanks

  3. Oh my goodness, these look so yummy. I love honey and how it blends so nicely with just about anything. Giving these potatoes a little sweetness.

  4. I remember this one was one of my favorite side dishes. The amount of flavor in these apples and potatoes is mesmerizing!
