The fall season is right around the corner, and with it comes some of my favourite recipes. I have shared my recipe for candied yams before, but it was for a larger quantity so I wanted to share the recipe in a smaller amount since not everyone has a big family like us.
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ¾ cup butter
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- Mini marshmallows to cover dish
- Peel your sweet potatoes and cut them into cubes. Boil them until they are soft.
- Add the butter, cinnamon and brown sugar to the yams, and mash them until smooth. Put the mashed mixture into a pie dish.
- Cover the sweet potatoes with the mini marshmallows and bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until the marshmallows are browned.
Sweet potatoes are a favourite of mine so I can eat them with any meal, but my candied yams are a staple at our holiday meals. My Mom made them every Thanksgiving and Christmas for my entire life, and I have been making them with the added cinnamon for my family over the last decade.
Let me know if you try them!
