Mashed Candied Yams

"Although I will always fondly remember my moms yams without marshmallows, I really wanted to try the candied version. After much trial and error, and mashing up a few of my favorite recipes, I created these. I've been told by friends and family that don't even like yams that I must make these every thanksgiving."

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Roast drained yams on a cookie sheet for 20 minutes until they are mostly dry and very lightly browned.
  • Mash yams, butter, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon together until well combined.
  • Blend the eggs and cream into yams. Start with 1/4 cup, then increase if needed, depending on how dry your yams are.
  • Pour into buttered 9x13 baking dish and cover with foil.
  • (Can be refrigerated or frozen at this point. Just defrost in refrigerator, then add approximately 15 minutes additional time to bake.).

  • Remove foil, top with marshmallows and return to oven for 10 minutes more, or until marshmallows are golden brown and puffed.
  • Enjoy!
