Baked Stuffed Yams

Recipe by Sydney Mike
READY IN: 1hr 15mins




  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F & set out a shallow baking pan.
  • Scrub yams well & pat dry.
  • Rub each with butter or salad oil, then pierce skin with a fork & place in the baking pan.
  • Bake until soft, about 30-40 minutes, OR bake at a lower temperature along with meat for about 1 hour. Remove from oven.
  • While yams are cooling slightly, beat 2 egg whites until stiff, then set aside.
  • When yams have cooled enough to handle, cut a slice off a side of each yam so that you can scoop out the pulp into a mixing bowl & leaving about a quarter-inch thick shell.
  • To the pulp, add butter, salt & pepper & orange zest, beating to mix thoroughly.
  • Fold in beaten & stiff egg whites.
  • Stuff this filling back into the yam shells & sprinkle tops with Parmesan cheese.
  • Return to a 350 degree F oven & bake another 10-15 minutes before serving.
