Joey's Baked Fresh Yams
March 06, 2012
"A local restaurant features these yams and they sell out daily. This is more of a technique than a recipe. With this technique the yam and skin stay extremely moist. I usually bake several at a time and microwave for additional meals."
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Scrub yam, coat with oil and wrap in foil.
Place on baking sheet and bake 1 hour or until yam is soft like a baked potato. Baking time is going to vary depending on the size of the yam. The baking sheet is to catch any sugary yam juice that seeps out of the foil.
Serve with topping of your choice. Butter, cinnamon, diced pecans or marshmallow fluff are all good. You can also use the baked yams for pies or casseroles.
