ingredients

  • 2 medium yams
  • 1 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed or canned/reconstituted)
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 14 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 4 tablespoons finely chopped pecans

directions

  • Bake yams (skin on) at 350-degrees until tender when pierced with fork (approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour).
  • Remove from oven and wrap in damp paper towel.
  • Increase oven temperature to 450-degrees.
  • Allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Peel off skin.
  • Slice yams into 1/2" thick rounds.
  • (For extra-nice presentation, after you've cut the rounds, use a cookie cutter to create scalloped edges or fancy shapes.) Place yam slices in a shallow baking dish that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and pour orange juice over all.
  • Mix nutmeg with brown sugar and sprinkle atop each slice.
  • Top each slice with finely chopped pecans.
  • Bake in oven for 10 minutes, or until the sugar is melted and pecans slightly toasted.

    For those who like yams (I don't but make them anyway) I am told these are to die for. I'll take there word on it and rate it as I am told.

    We loved this dish with our holiday meal. I baked the yams the night before and then sliced into cubes. I took the orange juice and added a tbsp of light brown sugar and dash of nutmeg, mixed and put in a large ziploc bag. As I added in the yams to the ziploc bag I added brown sugar to each layer of yams in the bag. Marinated this until dinner next day, turning the bag during the day. Before baking, I added a cup of juice and yams to pyrex dish. Then as I layered the marinated yams I sprinkled each layer with brown sugar/nutmeg mix. Baked in oven at 325 for 25-30 minutes. These were delicious and not overly sweet (sugar to your taste). The work was already done so last minute assembly was easy!!

    A great way to do yams without all the sugar and marshmallows. I did cut back on the nutmeg. Will certainly make this again.
