This is a dish that we make every Thanksgiving and is quite easy and tasty. There usually isn't too much left. And the orange yam color adds some interest to the table. A lot of this recipe is dependent on the amount of yams and 'eyeballing it' so the measurements aren't always exact. This can also be made ahead of time and reheated. Servings are estimated as we make this for about 22 adults and 8 children under 8 yrs of age. Please note that if recipe is to be made ahead of time and reheated, it should be on the moist side since it will need the additional liquid during reheating.
