“This is my family's favorite. I get in trouble with them if I try something different. It is adapted from the way my grandmother made yams. This makes a small casserole, but it is easy to double or triple for a crowd. (My family is a crowd! Twenty five plus when we all get together)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Spray a one quart casserole with non stick spray.
  2. Drain syrup from yams and set aside.
  3. In microwave safe bowl, combine flour, salt and brown sugar.
  4. Stir in syrup from yams, add butter and cook in microwave, stirring frequently till thick. (If too thick, add water to acheive desired consistancy, you should be able to pour it. My family likes LOTS of sauce!).
  5. Place yams in prepared casserole. Pour sauce over yams. Bake in 350 degree F oven till bubbly, about 25 minutes.
  6. Add marshmallows if desired, and return to oven to brown for about 5 minutes.
