Easy Candied Yams


This recipe would be great if you are pressed for time during the holidays or if you need to whip up something quick before a holiday work potluck. It can be stressful during the holidays with family members traveling into town and the added stress of also having cooking other holiday goodies, this is the perfect fast, easy, and delicious dish. Yams and sweet potatoes are high in fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese, which are all essential for a healthy diet. This recipe requires no chopping or mixing so even the kids can get in on the action. You can even add walnuts to the topping for extra crunch and an added bonus of omega-3 fatty acids. Fast, easy, nutritious, and cheap! You can’t go wrong.
