Mashed Yams

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Suedocbug

I was tired of plain old mashed potatoes. Tried this as an alternative. Now, we eat more yams than white potatoes!

Top Review by Chef Saskatchewan B

Very very good. We did add a little milk and some salt because all we had was unsalted butter. My daughter, who usually won't touch anything sweet potato or yam like, absolutely loved this. Way to go! We will definitely make this again.
