Candied Canned Yams With Marshmallows (GF)

This casserole is always a big hit at holiday meals. Yams surrounded with a thick sauce and topped with marshmallows... It's a vegetable that almost tastes like a dessert!

ingredients

  • 3 (40 ounce) cans cut yams in syrup, syrup reserved
  • 12 cup rice flour (or 1/4 c cornstarch as a GF alternative, or 1/2 c all-purpose flour if gluten-free doesn't matter)
  • 12 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 14 cup butter (half a stick)
  • 10 ounces marshmallows (less if desired)

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13x2 baking pan (or 4 quart casserole) with cooking spray.
  • Mix flour, brown sugar and salt in a microwavable 4 cup measuring cup.
  • Add syrup from yam cans so that the measuring cup contains about 2 1/2 cups. (You'll add about 2 cups of syrup, but some of the sugar and flour dissolves.) Stir.
  • Add butter, sliced.
  • Microwave, stirring frequently, until sauce is thick, but still pourable. This step took me about 10 minutes. I start with 90 seconds, then stir every 30 or 20 seconds. If it gets too thick, add water and stir.
  • Place yams in sprayed casserole. Pour sauce over yams. Bake until the sauce starts to bubble, about 25 minutes.
  • Top with marshmallows and return to the oven to brown, about 10 minutes.
