1 1/2 cups applesauce
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped nuts, toasted
1.Place sweet potatoes in 2- to 3 1/2-quart slow cooker. Mix remaining ingredients except nuts; spoon over potatoes.
2. Cover and cook on low heat setting 6 to 8 hours or until potatoes are very tender.
3. Sprinkle with nuts.
- 1 packet (1 oz) dry ranch dressing mix
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 package (16 oz) baby carrots- cooked (boiled or steamed)
Melt butter and sugar in large skillet or pan. Add carrots and dressing mix; still until well coated. Cook over medium heat until hot and glazed (about 5 min)
These are really easy and so good! They glaze is pretty thin and there is a fair amount of it so if you don't want them really "saucy" add more carrots than the recipe calls for!
