    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.

  • 4

    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.

    • 3 Tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • 5

    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.

    • To Taste honey

    • As Needed goat cheese

    • 1/2 Cup brown sugar

    • 1/2 Cup 

  • 6

    Based on how sweet you like your yams, you can add more brown sugar and honey.
