What’s on the menu? – Baked Yams

Are you looking for a new recipe that you will truly be grateful for?  I found this recipe many years ago and it’s become a family tradition that I bring my yams on Thanksgiving Day.  My family always raves about them, even those who are not big fans of the yam.  I promise you that you will give thanks at your Thanksgiving feast (not only for this great recipe, but for all your many blessings as well)!

3 c. cooked, mashed yams

1/2 c. sugar

1/3 c. milk

1/2 c. butter – melted

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

Topping:

1 c. brown sugar

1/3 c. butter – melted

1/3 c. flour

1 c. nuts – chopped (I use pecans)

In boiling water, cook yams in skins.  When soft, peel and mash with electric mixer.  Add sugar, milk, butter, eggs and vanilla.  Spray a 9×13 baking pan.  Pour yams into pan.  Using mixer, blend brown sugar, butter, flour and nuts until crumbly.  Sprinkle over yam mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes.  Enjoy!
