I don't know about you but I get tired of the ever so sweet yam dishes that line the tables on Thanksgiving. It's enough to make me have no room for desert. Too much calories - too much sugar! My husband hates yams and sweet potatoes and especially will not eat them with sweet toppings on them.
A couple of years ago I created this for my husband and for our family Thanksgiving feast. He loved it! It was yummy and everyone appreciated it as an alternative to traditional yams. I like it much better and I hope you will too! Because yams are naturally sweet, salty flavors compliment them quite well. The last things you should do as add more sweet to sweet. Let me know what you think!
- 6-8 cooked yams, peeled and mashed
- 1 stick melted butter
- 2 cups cooked bacon, crumbled
- 1/2 cup green onions, sliced
- dash of salt & pepper
- 2 cups shredded Mozzarella
- 2 cups shredded Parmesan
