Greek Sweet Potatoes.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F and spray a 2-quart casserole dish with coconut oil.
  2. Cut sweet potatoes crosswise into ½-inch slices. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a small bowl. 
  3. In the casserole dish, place a layer each of potatoes, apples and raisins. Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Toss slivered almonds in melted shortening, drain and top the casserole with nuts.
  4. Cover and bake at 375 F for 35 minutes. Remove the cover, and bake for 10 minutes, or until the top is browned.
