Mountain Jim's Southern Recipes


NashVegas Sweet Potatoes


My boys love sweet potatoes (true Southern boys!), so I came up with a quick dish for them.

Preheat oven to 350. While oven is heating, complete the following:

2cups mashed sweet potatoes

1 1/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. milk (we use 1%)

1/2 t. cinnamon

2cups mashed sweet potatoes

1 1/4 c. sugar

1/2 c. milk (we use 1%)

1/2 t. cinnamon

Mix sweet potatoes with sugar, eggs, milk, butter and spices. Bake in a greased casserole dish for 30 min. at 350. Add topping and bake 10 min. more.

I never say how many servings are in a dish, because if my cousin Tom gets the bowl first, all bets are off.


Apple Bread


When three hungry pre-teen boys come running into the kitchen after school, my doctor told me having a snack ready would ease stress (mine, not theirs…). This dessert bread seems to help...

Preheat oven to 350. While oven is heating, complete the following:

1 c. sugar

2 eggs

1 t. baking soda

1/2 t vanilla

1 c. apples, peeled and chopped

1/2 c. applesauce (healthier than shortening)

1 1/2 t salt (optional)

1 1/2 T. milk

2 c. flour

Mix sugar, applesauce, eggs, milk, and vanilla. Sift in flour, salt and soda. Add apples. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake 45 min. at 350.
