Welcome to Side Dish Week here at Cooking Dunkin Style! I hope you enjoy the recipes as much as we did creating and eating them!
My husband travels all over the world for both work and Graduate School, and on occasion wants to re-create what he has eaten at a restaurant. The following recipe came to me via a text message from him and all it said was; YAMS, SOUR CREAM, BROWN SUGAR AND WHISKEY. That's it!
Tonight we are having Ham Steak and I thought this would accompany it wonderfully. I used the above ingredients and guessed at the amounts. The taste is sweet, savory and totally unexpected. I adore it and it is my new "go to" Yam recipe!
Because I love you I am sharing!!!
2 large yams , peeled and diced
1 mini size bottle of the Whiskey of your choice, we used Makers Mark
1/4 cup brown sugar (you could use less or more to your taste)
1/4 cup fat free sour cream (you could use less or more to your taste)
salt and pepper to taste
Place your yams in a pan of water and boil until tender and you can slip a knife in quite easily, drain and return to the pan.
Add the brown sugar, whiskey, sour cream and salt and pepper. Mash with your potato masher for a more rustic yam or use a hand held mixer to whip them.
Taste and re-season if necessary. You can place a pat of butter on them and serve
