Enjoy an effortless holiday side dish by making my easy 4-ingredient recipe for Candied Yams!
Wash and peel your yams. Carefully slice the yams into ½-inch rounds. In a large skillet or saucepan, melt butter over medium to medium-high heat.
Once the butter has melted, layer yam slices inside of the skillet, and cook for about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle brown sugar and ground cinnamon all over the yams. Gently give everything a mix so the sugar is evenly distributed.
Reduce the heat to low, cover the skillet, and simmer for 30 minutes. Baste frequently, about every 10 minutes. The yams should be soft but not mushy.
Serve yams immediately, and enjoy!
