I created this on a whim using some ingredients I had on hand. My whole family enjoys eating it. I prepare it for church potlucks and what I consider minor holidays like Labor Day.
Four cans Royal Prince Yams (save all the orange-pineapple syrup)
2 pounds of ground beef
2 cups grated Longhorn cheese lightly packed
1½ cups Betty Crocker Instant Potato Buds
2 teaspoons salt
No nutrition information available
Brown ground beef and drain grease.
Add last four ingredients plus 1 cup of the syrup.
Mix well and put in 13x9 inch greased glass casserole.
Slice yams into small pieces and beat together with the rest of the syrup until smooth. Spread over top, and cover with plastic wrap.
Heat in microwave oven until hot throughout; about 10-15 minutes
May garnish with parsley after heating
