I was tired of plain old mashed potatoes. Tried this as an alternative. Now, we eat more yams than white potatoes!
- Ready In:
- 2 -3 medium fresh yams
- 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (can substitute brown sugar)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- peel and cut yams into cubes.
- boil until tender (about 30 mins).
- add butter, sugar, cinnamon.
- mix until smooth (I use the hand mixer but my mom prefers the stand mixer).

This was my first yam recipe and it hit the spot! I followed the recipe exactly, doubling it. We found the taste just right, but I would have added a splash of milk for a creamier consistency as another reviewer suggested. I used a hand mixer and the texture was fine, but I would have boiled them a little longer to make them smoother. My boys (who don't like anything resembling a sweet potato, refused to give this recipe any stars...) Haha, more leftovers for the rest of us!!!Reply
I'm not a yam fan, but I made this for Thanksgiving anyway. I added some maple syrup to the mix (a family tradition) and added marshmallows to the top. I popped the finished product in the oven to melt the marshmallows. What a great recipe! I cinnamon gives it a great flavor. This is a must-make recipe for anyone who thinks they don't like yams. You'll change your mind. I did.Reply
I don't usually sweeten my yams with sugar or cinnamon because I do like the flavor of a yam but I thought I would try something different and it was really nice, not too sweet just enough. Unfortunately, my family didn't like Yams at all so I had a HUGE pot left over, which I turned into soup the following Thursday! The kids enjoyed the yams which was nice too.Reply
