You may actually see which one is my mom, Alice Castille (pictured under). She was the inspiration for this recipe.
Castille was the primary runner-up within the Yambalee Queen contest within the Cajun city of Sundown, LA – the “Yam Capital of the World.”
They had been farmers and didn’t have some huge cash, however they ate properly. Cheap however nutritious yams had been on the dinner desk daily when she was rising up.
That is my recipe, which works virtually as a dessert – and the children find it irresistible while you add slightly border of marshmallows across the fringe of the dish int he final 10 minutes or so till they’re toasted.
Get pleasure from, y’all!
Ursula’s Yambalee Queen Christmas Casserole
1 cup brown sugar (I reduce it in half and use Stevia brown sugar, however simply don’t inform anybody!)
1/3 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans are finest, however you need to use walnuts or almonds)
1/2 cup butter, melted
For candy potato combination
3 cups cooked candy potatoes, mashed (you need to use canned in mild or no syrup to avoid wasting time, however rinse them to take away as a lot syrup as potential)
1 cup sugar (once more, baking Stevia works with this recipe)
1/2 teaspoon salt, not coarse
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, properly overwhelmed
1/4 cup butter, melted (if you happen to’re being wholesome, you need to use 2 tablespoons as an alternative)
Combine brown sugar, flour, nuts and melted butter in mixing bowl. Put aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Mix candy potatoes, sugar, salt, vanilla, eggs and butter in a separate bowl. Beat collectively completely in order for you a clean, pudding-like filling. I like to simply evenly mash the potatoes so there’s extra texture and extra candy potato style in every chew.
Pour combination into buttered baking dish.
Sprinkle the highest of the candy potato combination with the crust combination, then cowl with foil.
Bake for half-hour, then take off the foil and toast the highest for 10 minutes.
Permit to take a seat with unfastened foil a minimum of half-hour earlier than serving, so all of the fluids are absorbed (don’t fear, it’ll keep sizzling).
