Sweet Yam Rounds

A few days ago someone posted an appealing recipe for Sweet Potato Rounds on Facebook. I didn't take time to print it out, but I sure wished I had in the middle of dinner preparation last night! I went to Facebook and scrolled through my FB site as quickly as I could, but Tom had the rounds nearly done on top of the stove and it was time to get them in the oven! 

So we made an executive decision -- we would make up our own seasoning! Here is the recipe that we came up with. I think you'll like it. If you prefer a more savory taste, you might like this recipe, the one Kathy first posted on Facebook. Or you just might want to try out your own seasonings.
 Sweet Yam Rounds
Sweet Yam Rounds, served with
pan-fried fish, steamed broccoli and baked pear


3 yams, scrubbed, cut into 1/4 inch rounds (no need to peel)
olive oil
1 cup apple juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
salt and pepper to taste

Pre-cook the yam rounds by stir frying them in oil. Add 1/2 cup of of the apple juice, cover, and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Spray a large glass baking dish and spread the rounds out in the dish. Add 1/2 cup apple juice, sprinkle with cinnamon, cloves, salt, and pepper. Place in a 400 degree oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. (If you remember, turn them over part way through. You might want to add more seasoning at that time. But if you forget, don't worry. They are still quite good!)
