You can bake them, broil them, boil them put them on the Bar-B-Que. You make sweet potato fries they are so yummy What ever you do with a regular pottage you can do with a yam, and you'll love them more.. Just give them a try You'll like them I know you will.

    Not REAL Sweet Potato fries. Yams aren't Sweet Potatoes. Or vice/verse.

What you can do is slice Yams length wise. Pop into the micro for 30-60 sec. based on you micros wattage. You want the yams fork tender not floppy.

Crosscut the slices "like fries". Spritz with Canola Oil from your pump mister. Toss in a good size Baggie with you fav herbs and spices. A must to include is a SMOKEY Sweet Paprika.

Place on a seasoned, lightly oiled grill pan (on a stove top or B-B-Q grill) & finish cooking through. DON'T FORGET THE GRILL MARKS. emoticon
