Sweet Potatoes and Apples!

My own personal apple saga continues with this quick and easy side dish from my childhood. My Mama put raisins in it. I don’t. Enough said.

I consider this a cheat recipe since it uses canned yams. But it’s so good, no one will notice. Hide the cans in the bottom of the recycle bin.

Fully drain 2 large cans yams. Cut each in half lengthwise. Peel, core, and slice 3 large firm apples.

Butter or spray a casserole dish. Make a layer of yams, then half the apples, yams, apples, finish with yams.

In a saucepan, melt 1/2 stick of butter. Stir in 1/4C packed brown sugar and 1t cinnamon. Combine well. Pour over apples and yams.

Cover with foil. Bake at 375 F for 30 to 40 minutes until apples are tender. Serve hot.

I usually make this for Thanksgiving, but it is also a good side with baked or roast chicken. It’s good by itself!

Happy Apples for Fall!

Love, Grammy ❤
