Cinnamon Apple Mashed Potatoes

I've been seeing a lot of different versions of Apple Mashed Potatoes lately but I decided to do my own thing with them because I wanted to make it more of what my family would like. The most popular is Roasted Garlic Apple Mashed but I thought the garlic would overtake the apple taste, plus I wanted to them to be very kid friendly. I've seen everything from garlic to bacon to cheese & sour cream added in recipes. You can definitely make this your own, however you like. This recipe makes a huge serving so cut it in half for smaller portions. Went great with pork.

3 med - large green apples, peeled & sliced
7-8 med Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled & quartered
2 TBS sugar
2 TBS ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 cup softened butter
1 cup milk (we use 1 %)
1 TBS salt (more or less to your liking)
1 TBS black pepper

Put the quartered potatoes in a large pot, cover with cold water. Bring to a boil and cook until soft, about 20 minutes. Once soft, drain well.

Meanwhile, put the apple slices in a smaller pot with 2 TBS water. Cook on low - medium, stirring until they start to soften. Add the sugar, ground cinnamon and nutmeg, stir well. Begin mushing the apples. Add a pinch of salt. Season more to taste. Take off heat and set aside.

Put the pototoes in a large bowl and begin mashing. Add 1 TBS salt & 1 TBS pepper. Add the butter and milk and continue mashing. (You can add more butter or salt depending on your liking). Add the cinnamon apple mixture. Mix very well until desired consistency. Enjoy!
