These yams are my most requested recipe from the family during the holidays. Yams can be served with turkey, ham, or any vegetarian meal.
Making these the day before make it the perfect side for a busy cook. Refrigerate after baking and just re-heat in the oven and serve warm as one of your side dishes.
You can double-triple this recipe for your specific number of guests.
