I call this the 'recipe with legs' because every time I serve it, the recipe is requested. Even those who dislike yams and sweet potatoes love this tasty dish! This dish can be frozen, but freeze it without the pecan topping. Defrost before baking.

Ingredients

  • 4 pounds yams

  • 2 eggs

  • ¼ cup brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • teaspoon ground allspice

  • teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 6 ounces pecan halves

  • cup brown sugar

  • ¼ cup melted butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Poke yams in several places with a fork, then cook them on high power in microwave oven until heated through and soft, about 20 minutes. When cooled, remove skins and place the yams in a large bowl.

  3. Beat yams until smooth. Then beat in one egg at a time, blending after each addition. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/8 cup melted butter, salt, cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg; beat until the mixture is light and fluffy.

  4. Transfer mixture to an ungreased 3 quart casserole dish. Arrange the pecans in a single layer on top. Sprinkle with remaining brown sugar and drizzle 1/4 cup melted butter over the top.

  5. Bake for 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until browned and bubbly.
