Candied Yams

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
Good base recipe. Adding another can of yams keeps this recipe from tasting too rich...Drained then heated two 29oz cans Bruce yams in pot, mashed coarsely...In small saucepan I melted 1/4c butter & 1/2c sugar together then stirred mixture in w yams b4 smoothing it all into 8x8 pan...Per others' suggestions, I dusted w cinnamon; sprinkled w pecans; topped GENEROUSLY w marshmallows; covered w Spam-sprayed foil...Baked for 15mins, removed foil, watched marshmallows brown quickly...RESULTS: Beautiful presentation, good flavor, not runny at all. My son liked the hint of cinnamon but we'll leave out pecans next time (it just didn't compliment the creamy texture of the dish)...Next batch I'll also keep the yams whole. This was the first time I've ever mashed yams & I have to say I prefer them whole, mashed reminds me too much of babyfood.
