Yummy Yams

I haven't made this recipe recently, so I don't have a picture of it to share.  I will add one later.   It is quick and simple and ideal for this time of year.  People who don't like yams like this recipe.  Maybe because it is more like a dessert than a side dish.

Cook four pounds of yams until soft.  Remove skin and puree.  Beat in two eggs, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/8 cup melted butter, 1 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/8 tsp. allspice and 1/8 tsp. nutmeg. Beat until fluffy.  Pour into a three quart baking dish.

Chop 1 cup of nuts (I use pecans or walnuts most often).  Mix chopped nuts with 1/3 cup of brown sugar and spread evenly over yam mixture.  Melt  1/4 cup of butter and drizzle over top.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 25 minutes or until brown and bubbly. 

Try not to moan while eating.
