DIRECTIONS

  • In a skillet, brown the pecans (can also be done in the oven).
  • In a big pot, boil the yams for 12 minutes with water just covering them.
  • After 12 minutes, drain the water and replace with ice cold water to stop the cooking--peel and slice the potatoes.
  • In a big pan melt the brown sugar and butter together until saucy.
  • Add the bourbon and optionally flambé.
  • Add heavy cream, blend together.
  • Add the sliced yams to the pan and mix around with the sauce.
  • Add the pecans and mix together while heating for a little bit, but not to cook the yams completely.
  • Pour everything into a casserole dish and heat in the oven at 375° for 25 minutes or until potatoes are cooked.
