Savory & Sweet Twice Baked Yams With Marshmallows

The recipe works for yams or sweet potatoes. Yams are considered the slightly starchier root vegetable compared to sweet potatoes. Personally, I don’t really taste the difference. Recipe is from my chef co-host, Jesse Brune-Horan.

Makes: 2 large yams/sweet potatoes

* 2 large yams, fresh & uncooked
* 1 tsp salt
* 1 tsp black pepper
* 2 tbsp butter
* 1 tsp nutmeg
* 1 tbsp yellow curry powder (less if you prefer)
* 8-12 large marshmallows

To prepare:
* Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
* Place uncooked yams in the oven, directly on the rack or on a baking sheet & cook until soft, 30-40 minutes (you should be able to easily penetrate with a knife)
* Allow baked yams to cool
* Using a sharp knife, slice yams down the center
* Scoop out the yam meat and place in a medium size mixing bowl, keep the skin as intact as possible
* Add the seasoning and mash thoroughly
* Refill the skins with mashed yams, they should look full and robust
* Place marshmallows on top of the yams, covering the top
* Cool oven to 350 degrees F
* Reheat yams for 15-20 minutes, until marshmallows are light brown
* Remove from oven, cool for 5 minutes and serve
