Thanksgiving Candied Yams

Hi everyone, I’m sorry I haven’t posted a recipe in a bit. My little ones got sick…then I got sick and I haven’t been able to cook too much. However, I got back at it last night and put together a little thanksgiving sides recipe. My family always baked their yams for thanksgiving, but my husband likes them candied. So, I adjusted the recipe from the butternut Squash, beans and chicken post and came up with this delicious side. Here’s how to make them:

Peel and cube 3 large yams or sweet potatoes.

In a large skillet melt 3 tbsp. of butter. Add in the spices and brown sugar. Stir to combine.

Add in the cubed yams and toss to evenly coat. Brown the yams on medium heat. This should take about 10 minutes.

Transfer the browned yams to a oven proof dish. Cover and bake at 400 degrees until fork tender (about 45 minutes).

Serve and enjoy!
