Okay, so I am cutting for a competition and was having this INSANE urge to eat Candied Yams. Why? I have no idea. I am always craving odd foods when I'm Pre-Contest. Hey, at least this time its in the good range of foods...lol. But back on track...the sweet potatoes I made were SO good and Pre-Contest Friendly that I just HAD to share it with you guys :) Hope you enjoy it!

"CANDIED YAMS"

INGREDIENTS:
4-5 sweet potatoes
PAM (Butter Flavor)
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Cardamom
1 tsp Nutmeg
1/2-1 tbsp Truvia (Depends on how sweet you like it)
2 oz (or more) of crushed Almonds, Walnuts, or Pecans

DIRECTIONS:

1. Peel sweet potatoes and dice into cubes. Place into a large mixing bowl.
2. Spray enough PAM to cover the potatoes and toss around.
3. Add Cinnamon, vanilla, cardamom, nutmeg, Truvia, and nuts. Toss around until evenly distributed.

--IF YOU USE YOUR OVEN:
1. Place mixture into a casserole dish. Bake at 400 degrees, or until potatoes are tender.

--IF YOU USE YOUR MICROWAVE:
1. Place mixture into a microwave safe dish. Cover with plastic wrap. Poke a hole for ventilation. Microwave on high for about 20 minutes, or until tender.


Enjoy Ladies!!! Everyone has their own twist on their candied yams, so feel free to add or subtract anything from the recipe! I was thinking about adding some pumpkin puree next time ;)

Aloha!!!
