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.
