Mashed Yams with
This dish is a delicious complement to Tony Roma’s ribs.
2 pounds yams
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup finely chopped
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons butter
Salt and pepper
1 cup mini white
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup butter
2 tablespoons orange juice
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Peel yams and cut into 3-inch chunks. Cook in a large
pot of boiling salted water until tender, 20-25 minutes.
Drain well, then return the pot to the stove over low
heat for 1 minute to dry the yams.
Meanwhile, prepare the marshmallow butter: In a
microwave-safe dish, combine marshmallows,
pecans, butter, orange juice and cayenne pepper.
Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes, or until the
marshmallows have softened and the butter is
melted. Stir the mixture to blend.
Mash the yams. Beat in cream, sage, maple syrup,
butter, and salt and pepper to taste.
Top each serving of yams with a dollop or two of
marshmallow butter. Garnish with mini marshmallows. Serve with Tony Roma’s ribs. Makes 6 servings.
