Praline Yams

40 oz canned yams, drained
1/2 c chopped pecans (I usually candy my pecans first for additional flavoring)
1/2 c firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c flour
1/4 c melted butter
1 bag small marshmallows (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Place yams in a baking dish.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the pecans, brown sugar, flour, and melted butter together and blend well.
  • Sprinkle mixture on top of yams.  Bake yams in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes.
  • If you want to add a few marshmallows on top of the mixture as well, it adds a nice flavor and a hint of tradition.  I have tried both ways and like them both ways, but prefer these yams sans the 'mallows)

***I have also used regular yams, and simply cut them into cubes, and added a 1/4 c of water to the yams in the baking dish, this recipe tastes great both ways.***

Hubby Rating: 10!  This is a family hit at Thanksgiving.  These yams are absolutely spectacular!  Hope you enjoy!
