"My entire family has always hated yams until I made this dish 15 years ago. Now everyone looks forward to this dish during the holidays. However, I do make it at home during the year, not just during the holidays. I have given this recipe to several people that have requested it, now I'll give it to you."

Hi all! I am Carol Graham that submitted this recipie. I use pecans now instead of walnuts. The leftovers are only good cold, DO NOT MICROWAVE because the frosted flakes get soggy. Those of you that add marshmellows, I think that would not allow the topping to be crunchy. I do bake it a little longer, until the center is firm.
Was extremely sweet. Too sweet for our family but it was good. I made it into a dessert, I put a grahm cracker crust on the bottom of a 9x9 dish and used it as a dessert because it was so sweet. I liked it better like this. I also added a dew marshmellows on top.
This was just the best! It's so good, so addicting! I used 2# fresh yams, changed the white sugar to 1/4 c. brown sugar and used Total Brown Sugar and Oats, slightly crushed. It was fantastic. Made it for the Holidays once and EVERYONE raved, now it's a tradtional dish. Thanks!
I cooked this for Christmas and my whole family raved about it. I was out of brown sugar, so I used all white sugar. The family didn't seem to mind one bit. Great recipe!!!
Excellent dish! The kids really liked it. I didn't have frosted flakes or walnuts so I substituted Special K and and sliced almonds.
I've been making this sine 1999 and have made it for 120 and made it for 8. It gets rave reviews from everyone. I've even been strong-armed into giving out the recipe a few times. It is a bit sweet, so sugar can be cut back a bit. Also a note if doubling: the topping will become visibly (and taste) oily if you double the butter, but go ahead and double the rest of the topping ingredients. If you are looking for a dish to wow with, this is it.
I cannot believe that I got myself and my family to eat yams...
I made this for Christmas and again, last night..
And it was my kids who asked for it this time...
We all love this dish.. Thank you for putting it in Allrecipes.
I have never met Carol Graham, but I thank her a million times over for submitting this recipe. I've made it about 5 times now, and when I lost it, I was thrilled to be able to find it again on this website. It truly is the best yam casserole I've ever had, and my family/friends say the same. Also, I'm allergic to walnuts, so obviously I make it without them, and it's still INCREDIBLY good! Thank you for submitting it!
