Use the amount you need to meet the number you are serving. I always use 3/4 cup of yams and apples because they shrink a little and people love them!


Roasted Yams and Apples with Yellow Dog


  • Yams or sweet potatoes
  • Gala Fugi, Granny Smith Apples
  • Yellow Dog Sweet Shake
  • Small chunks of butter if you want to add a little


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Wash and scrub yams – dry and cut into bite-size pieces peel off any bad spots. Don’t remove the skin.
  • Apples washed, cored and cut into bite-size pieces..
  • Toss yams in a bowl, drizzle canola oil over to coat.
  • Generously shake Yellow Dog over the mixture. Add chunks of butter if you’d like to add a little extra flavor.
  • Pour into a roasting pan and roast at 450 stirring often for about 10 minutes. Add apples and mix well.
  • Roast until they are golden brown.
  • Note: you can use any type of apple, but use firm ones. I like to mix varieties too.
