I am a huge fan of Thanksgiving. When I was a kid, we would go to my grandparents house and watch football, eat turkey, and graze on delicious food all day long. That’s why I’m pretty much obsessed with any Thanksgiving recipes. I pretty much love them all.

Stuffing, and turkey, and green bean casserole. My mouth is literally watering as I think about all of these yummy foods. And, really – you don’t have to make these for Thanksgiving. You can make these yams whenever you want. Mind blowing, I know.

Ingredients for Traditional Thanksgiving Candied Yams

1 can, 40 oz, yams
1/2 cup, 1 stick, butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 bag, 10 oz, mini marshmallows

Directions for Traditional Thanksgiving Candied Yams

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Drain yams, but reserve 2/3 cup liquid. Pour (drained) yams into prepared casserole dish. Set aside.
In a saucepan, combine butter, sugar, 2/3 cup of reserve liquid, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Heat on medium heat, stirring frequently until sugar is dissolved and it begins to boil. Reduce heat and continue to cook for 3-5 minutes or until it begins to thicken. Pour over yams.
Note: You might want to cook the liquid a bit more so that your yams aren’t as runny. Mine were a little runny, but SO delicious. But if you are worried about that – just cook a little bit longer until the liquid starts to evaporate a bit.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and let set for 5 minutes. Add mini marshmallows and return to oven. Broil for 1-2 minutes or until marshmallows being to brown. Serves 8
That’s it. So easy right? I love this recipe so much – and I hope you’ll become obsessed with it too!
