MY DADS THANKSGIVING YAMS


Going to a thanksgiving dinner this year and not sure what to bring? Want to bring the most delicious dish that everyone raves about without all the work? WELL, I got the perfect dish for you!


This is also super inexpensive and ready to serve in one easy dish.


INGREDIENTS

- 2 (15 oz.) cans of Yams, drained

- ½ cup Butter, melted

- 2 tsp. Cinnamon

- 2 tsp. Ginger

- 2 tsp. Nutmeg

- ¼ cup Brown Sugar

- ½ cup Honey

TOPPINGS

- 1 (8 oz.) can of Pineapple Bits

- 1 cup Crushed Pecans

- Mini Marshmallows

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  2. Drain your canned yams and pour the yams into a small casserole dish.

  3. In a small bowl mix together the honey, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and butter. It should be a deep brown color once they all combine.

  4. Pour the honey mixture into the casserole dish.

  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes until it changes to an even deeper color. It is basically just meant to warm up everything and get it combined.

  6. Take your dish out and add your toppings. Add as much as you want. We typically start with pecans and then layer marshmallows.

  7. After another 5 minutes (or until the marshmallows are golden) take your dish out. Finally, add some pineapple bits on top. If you add these in the initial baking they will dissolve into the dish.

  8. It is ready to serve! Enjoy this time with loved ones!

 

My dad makes this recipe every year for our family Thanksgiving. It is a fan favorite especially if you love a bit of sweetness on your Thanksgiving plate.


You will want to start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees F.


Drain your canned yams and pour the yams into a small casserole dish.

In a small bowl mix together the honey, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and butter. It should be a deep brown color once they all combine.

Pour the honey mixture into the casserole dish.


Bake for 10-15 minutes until it changes to an even deeper color. It is basically just meant to warm up everything and get it combined.

Take your dish out and add your toppings. Add as much as you want. We typically start with pecans and then layer marshmallows.

After another 5 minutes (or until the marshmallows are golden) take your dish out. Finally, add some pineapple bits on top. If you add these in the initial baking they will dissolve into the dish.

Look at all the layers! You can let them set up for a few minutes so the juices aren’t as hot and allow them to thicken up.

Thanksgiving is all about spending time with those you love the most. Be sure to take this holiday in for all it is!


So cheers to good food and even better company!
