This is a savory-sweet cinnamon apple yam bake, with delicious roasted sweet potato chunks layered between thinly sliced cinnamon-coated apples and crunchy toasted pecans.


  • 34 ounce canned yams drained and sliced into 1/2-inch thick chunks
  • 2 medium-sized apples cored and sliced into sixteenths
  • 1/3 cup pecans chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter sliced
  • parsley for garnish


  • Using a mixing bowl, toss the apples, nuts, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Alternate layers of apples and yams in a greased 1.5 quart casserole dish. I used yams for the bottom layer, then apples for the next layer, then yams for the next layer, and then apples for the top layer. Place slices of butter on top.
  • Place the dish in the oven and bake for 45 minutes.
