    Laudee's Note:

    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!

      Wonderful, delicious...those words don't come close to describing how good this recipe is! Totally making these from now on...and several times throughout the year...not just at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I doubled the recipe, but I think the sauce as it is written would be plenty for 2 cans of yams.

      OMG this is sooooooooooooooooo good. My whole family loved it. Everyone asking for recipe. I addes some cinnamon and brown sugar to yams and sprinkles some red hot cinnamon candies on yams while they were cooking to sweeten yams little more. but with this sauce you dont need to. This is a 5 all the way.......
