Yum to (almost) anything with yams in it! I added the same amount of sliced potatoes. I used the whole zucchini the whole yellow squash and the whole red bell pepper (only). Seasonings were excellent. It would become 5 stars with more cheese on top!! Read More

Very healthy but just a little mushy for us. Maybe i overcooked the veggies because my house smelled so good!!! Think next time I will add a red potato and some carrots. We ate the whole thing and am thankful for the recipe:) Read More

This was one of those times when I actually had all the ingredients listed for a veggie dish so I made it exactly according to the recipe. Next time I might add a clove of minced garlic but otherwise this was a nice twist on the usual broiled veggie recipe. I used a mandolin which really sped up the chopping process and I cut the yams slightly thinner than the other veggies. It's a bright pretty dish (see photos) and all around fairly easy to prep not to mention super healthy. I think it would be fine to sub olive oil for the butter though it does add a bit of flavor. BTW this makes your house smell so good! I will make this again. Thanks Pegzhere! Read More

Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and the vegetables came out perfectly. I paired it with the baked dijon salmon from this site. The sweet yams and honey/pecan from the salmon were a great combo! Thank you for the recipe we will definitely be making this again soon! Read More

I loved it. I under cooked the yams a little so they they would not be mushy and added mushrooms. Read More

When everyone asks at the party "who made the fiesta casserole " you know you have a hit. This was an amazing potluck side to add to bread/meat based dishes for versatility. It's so so easy and I can see how it could be made with whatever you've got but I think the yams are key! Also don't skip that butter step but if you do and the crust is burnt like mine just add more butter and cheese on top. A little crisp is nice. Read More
