  1.  Wash large, nicely symmetrical, yams
  2. Poke a zillion holes in each with a fork
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour
  4. Cut in half and set aside to cool
  5. Let cool until they can be handled without being burnt
  6. Scoop out meat of potato, leaving skin boat intact
  7. Mash and mix with 1 TBL butter and 1 TBL cream per half of potato
  8. Spoon back into skin boats
  9. Sprinkle with cheese, salt and paprika
  10. If desired, whip up just a bit of meringue and put on top (See recipe below)
  11. Bake another 15 minutes at 350º

Meringue – Totally optional… I usually don’t do this step.

  1. Separate 2 eggs – keep yolks for other uses
  2. Beat whites until they start to come to peaks
  3. Add 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
