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.
Fall Recipe: Candied Yams
- 4 large sweet potatoes
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 3/4 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!
