      Simple and tasty... I never used to eat yams (they never used to be common around here)... so I'm just learning how yummy they can be. I used a hand mixer to mash and beat them into fluffiness... made a nice texture. Thanks for the recipe!

      Awesome! I loved it and am going to make it often and not just for holidays. The only thing I would change is that it has a more subtle flavor when made with 3 large yams instead of 2. I have made it both with 2 yams and with 3 yams and prefer it with the 3. Either way it is VERY good! Oh, plus I did not bake them but just whipped them up and served them like you would mashed potatoes.
