My mom and I went to a cooking class at Sur La Table yesterday afternoon.
It was a lot of fun, and definitely educational.
I had to share with you my favorite recipe for your Thanksgiving table!
This recipe was adapted from bon appetit.
Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes & Yams with Pecan Topping
4 pounds mixed yams and sweet potatoes peeled, and cut into 1 inch thick rounds
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
pinch of salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) chilled butter, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup packed golden brown sugar
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter 9x13" glass baking dish. Place yams and sweet potatoes in your food processor with a sliced setting, remove thinly sliced yams and potatoes and place in baking dish.
Mix yams, sweet potatoes, and maple syrup. Season with a pinch of salt. Dot with 3 tablespoons of butter. Cover and bake until yams and sweet potatoes are almost tender, about 25 minutes.
Mix flour, brown sugar, remaining 5 tablespoons butter and pecans in food processor. Sprinkle mixture atop of yams and sweet potatoes. Bake until tender, about 15-20 minutes.
I loved the texture and flavor of these roasted yams!! They were delicious!
