Praline Yams

Praline Yams

I found this recipe on the back of a can of yams.  (Sorry, I can’t remember the brand.)  I really liked yams and wanted a recipe to make for a holiday dinner so I decided to try it.  It turned out to be so simple and delicious that I saved the recipe and make it several times a year now.  It seems to be a crowd pleaser when taken to potlucks or dinners.  My Father even  likes it and he is a picky eater.

40 ounce can of cut yams

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

(Note: you can substitute walnuts or almonds instead of pecans.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Drain the yams and place them in an ungreased 2 quart baking dish.  Combine the remaining ingredients, blend them well.  Sprinkle the mixture over the yams.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes (depending on your ovens temperature) until bubbly and slightly browned.
