      I made this as part of our Easter Dinner and it was a big hit. It is a keeper. Thank you for sharing it!

      My family loves savory yam recipes (rather than sweet) and we LOVED this! The flavors are wonderful together..... nothing overpowers the yams. I used my potato masher rather than a food processor. I'll make yams this way again; thanx!
