DIRECTIONS

  • Drain the yams and the pineapple VERY well.
  • Mash the yams and pineapple in a large bowl with your hands or a masher.
  • Roll into baseball size balls and cover in the corn flakes. They look nice with the flakes sticking up.
  • For those who like marshmallows, place a marshmallow or use some mini marshmallows, placed in the center of the ball and then cover with the corn flakes; or indent and add marshmallows.
  • Chill balls in the refrigerator to firm up.
  • Place balls on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake, at 350°, to heat through and until cereal starts to brown; about 25 minutes.
  • Easy to serve with a spatula.
  • Since a "ball" is a portion and you can adjust the size of the balls based on how many guests you have!
