From an old kitchen them calendar which included recipes. When you want that easy apple & yam casserole but don't have a lot of time this is a great short cut recipe. You can either microwave this dish or use your oven. Love the versatility!

This was an easy, quick and very good tasting recipe. I liked the combination of apples and yams. This would be a great side dish for Thanksgiving. Think I will hang onto it for the holidays. thanks
