How to Make Comfortable Yams (or Carrots, Squash)

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain yams or carrots, pour into microwave safe bowl or large casserole dish. Of course, you can use fresh veggies - just roast and peel them as you normally would first!
  2. Combine vanilla, ginger ale and Southern Comfort.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients.
  4. Add dry ingredients to liquid, mix until dissolved.
  5. Cut butter into cubes and distribute evenly over yams or carrots.
  6. Pour mixture over yams or carrots, fold to coat.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees 30 minutes or microwave on high for 10 minutes until bubbling.
  8. Let stand a few minutes before serving. Can top with mini-marshmallows if desired.
  9. The sauce is more versatile than I thought. Recently I've discovered it's fantastic as an addition to barbeque sauce, a dipping sauce, some pie recipes (awesome with pumpkin), a glaze for some meats and it will also work with other veggies. Be adventurous!
