Streusel Yam Casserole

This creamy yam casserole has been handed down for generations. I have taken the honor of serving this family favorite at Thanksgiving and Christmas. With one mixing bowl, ingredients are mixed all together, poured into a casserole dish, topped with brown sugar, flour and butter to make a crunchy carmelized top. This recipe can be made a day in advance and kept in the refrigerator either before or after baking time. I've had people tell me they "don't like yams" until they taste this one!
