Here is your weekly dose of yummas! And hey! we are at Y already... weeeee!
Daughter loves LOVES loves yams so in honor of our little bumpkiss ... here ya go:
YAM CASSEROLE [good-ness ahead]
All you'll need:
4 pounds yams
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 ounces pecan halves
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
All you'll do:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Poke yams in several places with a fork, then cook them on high power in microwave oven until heated through and soft, about 20 minutes. When cooled, remove skins and place the yams in a large bowl. -> I cook in short 4 minute intervals. My microwave cooks the yams quickly. You be the judge. You know your microwave. ;o)
Beat yams until smooth. Then beat in one egg at a time, blending after each addition. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/8 cup melted butter, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg; beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Transfer mixture to an ungreased 3 quart casserole dish. Arrange the pecans in a single layer on top. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar and drizzle 1/4 cup melted butter over the top.
Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until browned and bubbly.
So easy right? And so tastey. Try it.
