Candied Yams With Marshmallows Recipe
Favorite Holiday Dish - Candied Yams
I think we each have a favorite dish that we like to eat or prepare for Thanksgiving and for Christmas dinner. My Holiday dish that I enjoy making is the candied yams also known as candied sweet potatoes. They always taste yummy and there are rarely any left overs.
Most years we go to my sisters house for Thanksgiving and I always volunteer to bring a few dishes. One of those dishes is candied Yams. The Candied Yams recipe that I make was passed down from my Mom and it is really so easy that anyone can make it. And now that my kids all know how to make my sweet potatoes I'm sure they will be making them for their families as well.
Although this recipe is a favorite for the Holiday season, and goes perfectly with Turkey, it is also great with Chicken or even Pork.
Candied Yams Recipe
How to Make Candied Yams
2 large cans of yams or sweet potatoes
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 stick of butter
1 or 2 cups of mini marshmallows
In a casserole place two cans of Yams or sweet potatoes (drained). I like to cut them up so they are in smaller pieces.
Cover potatoes with a 1/2 stick of butter. Cut it in little pieces and spread out over the potatoes.
Then sprinkle brown sugar over the butter. It really is up to you how much you like.
Top off with mini marshmallows.
Place in a 350 degree oven until the marshmallows start to brown.
