Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

I adopted this easy to make Yams recipe from my mother. She has an easy approach to making yams that retains their natural flavor. I added a little cinnamon and nutmeg to my version. However, you could try different spices or just make them with a little butter or olive oil. I hope you enjoy this recipe and thanks for stopping by!

2 – 3 Yams, washed
Butter or Olive Oil

You can boil the yams ahead of time, store in the refrigerator, and peel when ready to use them!

Boil the whole yams in water until cooked through. Cool them in the refrigerator and they will be easier to peel. The skin will pretty much fall off. Peel and slice the yams. Melt a little butter in a frying pan and add the yams. Sprinkle a little cinnamon and nutmeg and brown. Turn yams over so both sides brown. Serve warm with my Moms Baked Parmesan Chicken and enjoy!!

      Thanks Sheryl. It is so simple but yet very good. I like that I can make the Yams ahead of time and then just do the final preparation for dinner. I hope you enjoy it. 🙂

  4. That looks delicious, and so simple to make. It reminds me a bit of fried plantain to which I used to add just a little salt….
