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!
