Chicken & Gravy with Roasted Eggplant & Candied Yams - $4 Cost per serving. 1 Hour prep time!
These Ain't Your Mamas Candied Yams - Roasted Candied Yams - No Sugar. No Butter. These ain't your Mama's Yams. I love those classic candied yams, but the butter and sugar are no longer in my diet. Too many members of my family suffer from Diabetes. These heart-healthy yams are simply: Organic Yams, EVOO, Thyme, Rosemary, Jalapenos, 1/2 Slice Uncured Bacon (optional), Crushed Red Pepper, Cinnamon, Course Sea Salt and Onion Powder. Omit the bacon and make it Vegetarian and Vegan. Roasted at a high temp and the natural sugars caramelize. Beyond delicious and healthy.
