baked sweet and savory yams by bennie kendrick
3 Medium Yams
3 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
To Taste honey
As Needed Goat Cheese
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup Pecans, pieces
When ready to cook, set the temperature to 350℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
While Z Grill comes to temperature, wash yams and poke a few holes all over. Wrap yams in foil.
Bake for 45-60 minutes or until knife tender. You don’t want to overcook and get the yams too soft because you want to be able to cut each yam into rounds.
Once yams have cooled to the touch, cut each into 1/4” rounds. Lightly coat each round with oil olive and place on sheet tray.
Sprinkle each top with brown sugar. Using a teaspoon, place desired amount of goat cheese on each round. Next top with chopped pecans. Finally, drizzle Bee Local honey over each round.
Based on how sweet you like your yams, you can add more brown sugar and honey.
After complete, place your sheet tray back in the Z Grill and cook, lid closed, for another 20 minutes. Enjoy!
