Holiday Yam & Cranberry Casserole


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Make crumb topping by mixing these ingredients:

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

Then cut in 1/3 cup margarine or butter (pea sized bits).

Stir in 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats.

Stir all together. Take one cup to be mixed inside and save the rest for the topping.

Butter or spray Pam on the inside of 1 1/2 qt casserole dish.

Pour in 2 17 oz cans of Yams (drained),

2 cups fresh (washed and drained) or frozen cranberries

and the reserved 1 cup of crumb mixture.

Top with remaining crumb mixture and bake uncovered for 35 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Right before serving, sprinkle with 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows and broil until lightly browned (DO NOT WALK AWAY FROM  THE BROILER, they burn quickly, even caught on fire once). It stays warm for quite a while, serve and enjoy.

I think my mother and I found this in a women’s magazine in the 70’s. It’s been a family favorite ever since.
