Big Hit!!

I made this for Thanksgiving at my parents house this year. Everyone loved it so much that everyone demanded we have it every year. I was even asked to make it for christmas dinner.

loved this casserole

This was so great..every one of my guest raved about it. I used Granny Smith apples, and their tartness went really well with the sweet yams. I will definitey have to make this dish again and again. I even put the Stouffers Harvest Apples in between the layers horizontally to cover up the space between the layers. Delicious!!

We loved this

I prepared the Yam-Apple Casserole to accompany my pork roast. I was not dissappointed. It was totally delicious and so easy to prepare. I did add a pinch of salt, which I think rounded out the flavours. I will certainly serve this again as most of the ingredients are usually in my pantry.

Meal that Heals

I have been using this recipe for years in place of the sweeter ,usual combination of sweet potatoes,orange juice and brown sugar. I found it in a book titled "Meals That Heal",put out by RodalePress Inc.Sweet Potatoes and apples are two of the fifty foods listed as assisting in the prevention of cancer,lowering cholesterol,control of blood pressure and weight loss.The only difference in the recipes is the use of honey instead of sugar (less sweet and more natural).My family and I love this dish and have it quite frequently.

What a combo

My family loves sweet potaoes and apples. I just never thought of having them in the same dish. I made this over the weekend, what a hit. I will make this often. Sincerly, Stephanie Klein
