Vanilla Crumb Crusted Yam Bake
This is a nice holiday side dish
The true vanilla extract works
incredibly well with the flavor of
the yam or sweet potato.

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)
1/3 stick butter -- melted  ( Do not omit or reduce this amount )

3 cups roasted yams ( 2 to 3 large Yams)
1 cup vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
2 tsp Lemon juice (Fresh or bottled)
2 eggs -- well beaten

You can use Sweet Potatoes
Instead of Yams if you like.

Roast the Yams for about 45 minutes in the oven till soft.
Cut open and remove the beautiful orange flesh into a mixing bowl

Here are the brown sugar, chopped pecans or walnuts , flour and melted butter
It is helpful to some to measure them out in separate containers.
Blend all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and reserve.

Add the Vanilla Sugar to the yams
You can of course substitute white sugar or turbinado( raw sugar) add a
little more vanilla extract .

I like to add a little lemon juice.
you can use fresh or bottled. This adds nice contrast
to the sweetness.

Add the eggs and salt and whip smoothe add to a small 9 by 9 casserole dish

make sure you choose a baking dish that leaves a good 1/2 inch (thumbs width) at the top after you add the yams.

Add the crumb topping

Ready now to pop the casserole into a 350 degree oven and bake for
45 minutes. till about 180 degrees and the crust is browned.

Here is the finished casserole and garnish any way you like, I used some lemon slices and parsley.
