READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Lightly grease a 13 x 9 inch baking dish with oil or coat with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the cream and cayenne pepper.
  • Arrange 1/3 of the yams in an even layer on the bottom of the prepared dish.
  • Season with 1/2 t salt and 1/4 t each of black pepper and thyme.
  • Pour in 2/3 c of the cream mixture.
  • Repeat for 2 more layers.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cracker crumbs, Parmesan, pecans, and melted butter.
  • Give it a good stir so the butter coats the crackers and pecans.
  • Scatter the mixture over the top of the casserole.
  • Cover the dish with foil and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Uncover and bake until the top is golden brown, the yams are tender, and the house is filled with the most wonderful sweet and buttery smells, 30-45 minutes longer.
