We had Thanksgiving in California at Todd's brothers house! We had a great dinner and even experimented a little!
Heather found this recipe on Allrecipes.com. They were super yummy and a really good flavor adding the spices to it!
Sweet Potatoes or Yams
(adapted from Allrecipes.com)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- 1 bag large marshmallows
- about 6-7 medium yams or sweet potatoes
Boil your sweet potatoes with the skins on until the skins start to crack. Peel the skins off (or the skin will just peel off to the touch) and slice. My mom always peels the sweet potatoes or yams first and chunks them. She then covers them and boils them until tender~just like regular potatoes. I don't think it matters what way you do it, just make sure your potatoes are tender.
Put your sliced yams in a 9 x 13 pan. We then sprinkled brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg over the top. Next we dolloped the butter over the tops of them. Next cook this in a 350 degree oven until the butter and sugars are melted, about 10 minutes or so. (Next time we were going to try putting the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a saucepan. Melting it all together and then putting it all over the cooked potatoes and skipping the baking part again?)
Now add your marshmallows all over the top and broil until they are golden! Don't take your eyes off or you will have burnt mallows! YUMMY!!
