....is so good on yams. It's strange really. Here's a recipe that combines both:
Preheat electric oven to 425 (old gas oven could be 450). Peel and slice one yam into 1/4" slices. Don't cut any fingers off! Sprinkle with olive oil. My Mom says flavored oil is interesting too. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and then some cayenne pepper. Bake for 15 mins and then turn and bake another 5-10 mins until they are soft when pierced with a fork. You can also bake a little longer until they're crispy.
