Yummy Yams

So my sister said that she wants yams for Thanksgiving. To be honest with you, I had never tasted it before. I got her recipe and it became one of my favorite side dishes. Oh My God! I am in love :).


2 1/2 Pounds of Sweet Potatoes
1 Tablespoon of Butter
4 Oz of Evaporated Milk
1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon of Ground Cinnamon
1 Bag Miniature Marshmallows

How to Prepare:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cut the sweet potatoes in half  and place in large pot and boil. Reduce heat and cook until tender.

Remove from heat and drain water.

Using a potato riser, mash the potatoes.

Add butter, evaporated milk, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon and beat until smooth.

Place in a baking sheet and spread evenly, covering the top with marshmallows.

Bake for 20 minutes or until marshmallows have browned.
