Cover and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Turn heat off and stir in 2 cups of cut up yams and Mrs. Cubbison’s Corn Bread Stuffin’ until well combined and evenly moist.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a casserole dish with cooking oil spray. Spoon Stuffin’ mixture into casserole dish, top with remaining cut up yams, dried cherries and chopped pecans. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Remove from oven; remove foil and serve.
