From Yams to Yums!

Ok, it's corny but I couldn't think of anything else!

I am not a huge fan of yams unless they are covered in brown sugar, butter and marshmallows!  Can I get a witness?!  This, like all of my recipes, it very good and very easy!  My FIL (father-in-law) and I are the only real yam lovers in the house, so this year I decided to make smaller, individual servings!  Plus- any excuse to use my super cute ramekins and I'm in!!

Brown Sugar & Marshmallow Yams
Yams- duh!
Brown Sugar
Salted Butter
Jet Puffed Marshmallows

1.  Peel & Cut Yams into 1/2in or smaller cubes.  Boil in salted water until you can easily put a fork through them, about 10 min.  Drain.
2.   Place yams in a bowl with 2-3 tbs butter and mash until creamy.
3.  In ramekin, layer yam/sliver of butter/brown sugar twice and top with marshmallows.  Try to make sure no yams are poking out.  You may have to get a bit physical with them :) Sprinkle w/brown sugar.
4.  Bake @ 350 until marshmallows are a bit melted and golden brown.
5.  Let cool a smidge, yes that's a technical term, and serve!

Until next time...

  1. I really don't like yams either and I think their one of those foods where people either love or hate them. I do understand the need to use those ramekins because somehow I ended up with a total of eight of them and I only occasionally use one to make me an individual serving of cobbler.
