Praline Yams

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Laudee

I cut this recipe out of the Denver Rocky Mountain News Food Section 30-some years ago. I've made it every Thanksgiving and Christmas since. It's quick and simple to prepare (right on the stove), and a nice addition to a big dinner.

Oh I wish I could give more than 5 stars. This recipe is a real treat. I made this with my Christmas fare and it got fantastic reviews. I did use fresh yams that I par boiled for about 10 minutes before putting in my casserole dish. Everything else I followed as directed and we were quite pleased with the results. Excellent recipe! Thank you!
