Savory Whipped Yams - Thanksgiving Week 2010


This is a wonderful side dish and different from the overly sweet candied yams. I am re-posting it for Thanksgiving Week.

Until about 15 years ago I thought the only way to eat yams was covered in butter, brown sugar and marshmallows. We went to a friends house for dinner and she served them savory, I was hooked. It is a refreshing way to serve Yams!

Ingredients
2-3 large Yams
1/2 cube butter or margarine
salt and pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste, I use 1/2 tsp but I like heat
crumbled bacon (optional)
1/2 tsp fresh sage chopped finely

Peel your Yams and cut them into cubes, boil in water until fork tender, drain.
Add the above ingredients to your Yams, whip them with your hand held mixer and serve.

They are amazing!

Sweet potatoes are my favorite side dish. If my hungry hordes would tolerate them, I'd eat them every night!

Happy Thanksgiving, Cheryl.
