"Manga the directions say to "alternately layer potatoes and apples", so you would have potatoes, apples, potatoes, apples until you used all you had sliced."

"The picture shows the potatoes on the bottom and the apples on top. The description by Jean also states the apples should be on top,but the directions say to layer. Confusing."

"A favorite among my whole family. We have made this many times over and enjoy it as a welcome change from the typical overly sweetened sweet potatoes with marshmallows. Also works well to make this ahead and refrigerate before cooking."

"This was excellent. easy to prepare and the leftovers reheated nicely in the microwave. The only thing I did differently was to chop the apples instead of leaving them in rings so that every bite would have a some."
