Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 large (40-ounce) cans large yams or sweet potatoes, drained
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 (12-ounce) jar marshmallow topping
Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and pecans. Simmer for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, place drained yams in a large bowl and mash finely with a potato masher (leaving some chunked pieces). Pour sugar/pecan mixture over yams. Stir until combined thoroughly. Add in cinnamon and nutmeg. Transfer to a metal pie pan. Top with marshmallow topping. Bake for 15 minutes at 325 degrees F. Remove from the oven and raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Bake for an additional 10 minutes at 400 degrees F to brown the top, watching carefully to keep from over-browning.

I make this dish every Thanksgiving and Christmas It is SO GOOD..One of those dishes the whole family always looks forward to...Love it Sandra ..Thank You item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this reciped for the last two Thanksgivings. It's the best sweet potato recipe we've ever had and SOOOOO easy. When I have a lot of dishes to prepare, I'm relieved at how simple and foolproof this always turns out. Yams out of a can are as fast as you can get, and the marshmallow fluff topping always looks beautiful, no matter how sloppy I think I spread it on. And, this is the only dish my niece will eat. If you need a quick and easy good side dish, this is a wonderful bet. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This was so easy and very delicious. It was a bit sweet, but that's why I liked it so much. The marshmallow crust on top was so pretty. Will definitely make this again (maybe with a tad less brown sugar)!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
