This is an awesome, versatile recipe. I made this for Thanksgiving today and it was a big hit, but I did some things differently - I used a little less than half a cup maple syrup instead of the sugar, added cinnamon to the mixture, topped it with chopped walnuts and almonds, and took the cover off for the last 15 minutes or so of the baking so the nuts could crisp. It was amazinggggg. Oh, I feel like the apple to yam ratio was a bit different (maybe less apples?) but with size variation I guess that doesn't matter so much.


This was pretty good. I had run out of margarine this morning and it definately made a difference in the dish but i think if it had it then it would have been  a lot better.
