The only way to eat yams

Trust me...these are the BEST yams.  And it might sound weird, but the caramely sauce is a great thing to dip a roll in :)


1 large can Princella yams
1/2 - 3/4 cups brown sugar (to make the caramel sauce thicker, add 3/4 cup sugar)
1/4 cup butter
2 Tablespoons Karo syrup
1 Tablespoon whipping cream
Small marshmallows

To make...

Melt butter in saucepan, add brown sugar.
Add Karo syrup and whipping cream, stir to a slight boil.
Drain yams VERY well, cut into smaller pieces and place in 9x9 dish.
Pour sauce over yams.
Cover and bake at 350 for 40 minutes.
Take out, cover with marshmallows and broil for 1 minute, watching constanty so the mallows don't burn.

This serving size feeds about six people.  Let me know what you think after Thanksgiving dinner!  Enjoy!

  1. Perfect! I am in charge of sweet potatoes/yams this year! How would you change this so you don't use canned yams? Ive never tried canned yams and want to stick with fresh!
