I created this dish after getting tired of all those yam recipes using brown sugar and marshmallows. This makes sweet potatoes taste more like they should - a side dish rather than a dessert. Also, you can easily adapt this recipe to vegan simply by using soy cheese. It's worked well for me in the past.

Everyone at the table wanted this recipe. I've never seen anything like it. The onions take on the sweetness of the yams and have an almost carmelized taste - yum! I would suggest cooking it uncovered for an additional 15 min. to really cook it all the way through and melt/brown the top crust. Also, try to cut the potatos super thin while the yams are sliced thicker because the yams tend to cook to quickly while the potatos take longer to cook.

This recipe was great - it's first savory sweet potato dish I've had, and I definitely like more than the candied sweet potatoes. I would recommend a few alterations though - Omit the breadcrumbs, they're not necessary. Bake for 30 min without the cheese, then add cheese, and bake for 30 min more so cheese doesnt buurn. Next time I might add some cheese between the layers of potatoes. I definitely will want to make this again with the alterations I mentioned.

I used Monterey Jack Cheese and chicken boullion instead of Mozzerella cheese and veg boullion. -only because it was in my fridge. Excellent side dish with Turkey!
