Are you cooking? Countdown! Thanksgiving! I am SO excited! I am working hard to get everything done to kick into the holiday season. I CRAVE these goodies this time of year. Ready to cook with me?
What You Need:
2 (15 3/4 oz.) cans of yams, drained
1/2 C butter, melted, divided
1/2 C sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
1 C butter flavored crackers, crushed
1/2 C packed brown sugar
How to Make It:
Place the yams in a large mixing bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork.
Break the egg into the yams.
Pour in 1/4 C of the melted butter.
Sprinkle in the sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Mix well with a rubber spatula until all the ingredients are incorporated together well.
Bring the oven temperature up to 350 degrees.
Spray a square baking pan generously with a non stick cooking spray.
Spread the yam mixture evenly into the prepared baking dish.
Place the crushed crackers into a small mixing bowl.
Add the brown sugar.
Drizzle in the remaining melted butter and toss being sure all the crackers are covered.
Sprinkle the topping mixture over the top of the yams in the baking dish.
Bake 30 minutes or until nice golden brown on top.
Chopped pecans can take the place of the crackers in this recipe for a little change of pace.
