Holiday Yams

I am going to share with you the best recipe for yams!!!!!!!! I had never liked yams before, they always seemed so mushy and yucky (texture is important to me with food...). This recipe was introduced to me a few years ago by Chad's cousin and I was amazed :) For more proof on how good they are; last year I made them for my family for Thanksgiving dinner. I noticed my brother eating them and asked if he liked the yams I had made. He looked down at his plate, "These are Yams!? I thought it was some kind of dessert!" HAHA! Once you try these you will never go back! And they are super easy!!!

Nutty Candied Yams:

1/2 c. Brown Sugar
1/4 c. Butter, softened
1/4 c Flour
3/4 c. Pecans

In a small bowl, mix together topping ingredients; set aside.

1/4 c. Butter
1/2 c. Orange juice
1/4 c. Brown Sugar
1 29 oz. can yams, cut into pieces and drained (I've used fresh yams as well and might even like it better..)

In a small saucepan, heat butter, orange juice, and b. sugar over low heat until melted together. Place Yams in 9x9in baking dish. Pour sauce on top. Sprinkle Yams with topping. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned. Serves 6. 

This is what is will look like before baking

My little girl loves this recipe too!! She gobbles it up pretty fast :)
