Serves 30

9-10 Red Yams
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter
1 tablespoon of ground gloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 bag of mini marshmallows 

1.  Pre-heat over to 350

2. Pierce yams with a fork to vent & stick (2-3) in microwave safe dish and cover with saran wrap.

3. You can use the potato button if your microwave has one or zap until soft to the touch, approx 6-7 mins, times will vary.

4. Once soft let cool to room temp, cut off ends & peel off skin, place in mixing bowl.

5. Add potatoes as they are done and mix in brown sugar, butter, salt, and ground cloves. I use my hand mixer to mash them up because I like a smoother texture.

6. Grease a 9x12 casserole dish and pour in mixture.  Bake at 350 for 25 minutes, take out pour marshmallows on top & turn oven to broil.  Place dish back in for 5 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly browned.

Serve & Enjoy!
