This recipe reminds me of being little. Every Thanksgiving my family would make this and I remember when it was finished baking it would be time for the oven to be set to "broil" and topped with marshmallows.
I thought it was magical to watch the marshmallows begin to brown and melt. Yes, even a few times we weren't quick enough to get them out in time and they did burn. This recipe certainly doesn't hold true for the saying, "a watched pot never boils". :)
1 20 oz. can pineapple slices (drained) reserving juice
2 17 oz. cans yams, drained
1/4 cup flour
3 TB brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. salt
3 TB butter
1/4 cup walnuts
1 cup mini marshmallows
Drain pineapple. Reserve juice, set aside. Arrange yams in 9 x 13 baking pan. Top with pineapple rings. Pour pineapple juice over yams and pineapples.
Combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cut in butter with pastry blender until coarse and crumbly. Stir in nuts. Sprinkle over yams. Bake 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Remove dish from oven, sprinkle with mini marshmallows. Broil for 30 seconds to a minute, watching every single second......these devils will burn quickly. When marshmallows start to melt and just begin to brown, remove immediately.
I usually double this, using a larger baking dish. The yams will be hard to find in this size.....I just get the 29 ounce cans and get as close as possible :)
