Paleo in a Pinch

Scalloped Sweet Potato ‘n Apple

With spring well under way and summer begging to come a bit early, it’s time to add a touch of sweet to our savory. Yes?

Yes, ma’am. Please and thank you.

We all have memories of scalloped potatoes — some better than others. Here’s a Paleo in a Pinch twist on a classic favorite.

I’ve layered sweet potatoes and apples, with a dash of rosemary and chives, binding together a perfect medley of sweet and savory. Add a few pats of grass-fed butter and you’ve got a healthy side dish that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

{Grass-fed butter is 100% Paleo approved. It’s made from grass-fed cows and simply delicious. You can find grass-fed butter at your local grocery store, in the natural refrigerated section. I usually buy Kerrygold and Organic Valley.}
