Yams – Sweet potato with marshmallows recipe

Yes I admit it, this combination of sweet potatoes and marshmallows sounds peculiar  for my German tongue. I got this recipe from my American husband. This dish is traditionally on our Thanksgiving table. I personally am not a fan of Yams, or also called sweet potatoes. But this recipe so delicious.


Below you will find this recipe for printing and making. It’s like most American foods, very easy to cook.
