Praline Yams

Okay. One last post for today. My sister-in-law makes these Praline Yams every Thanksgiving, and it is the only way I will eat them. I have never been a fan of the marshmallow topped version. I try to like them, I should like them, but I just can't. So, I am glad she came up with this recipe. Don't tell anyone that she uses canned yams.

1 large -40 oz. can yams, drained
1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sweetened, shredded coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup melted butter

Place yams in baking dish. Mix remaining ingredients together in a small bowl. Crumble over the top of yams. Bake in a 350 oven for 35-45 minutes, until nice and golden brown on top. Mmmm. I love to eat them for breakfast the next day!

I make these too! They are the ONLY way to make yams. Marshmallows are for rice krispies and s'mores. I've served them to many people who claim they don't like yams and then try them and gobble them up.

Please come see us while you are here at Thanksgiving. My parents will be here, but we want you to come visit while you are around...if you can squeeze us in. We know you are VERY popular.
