Make a yam potato rose garnish by rolling up slices of yams and forming into a rose. I like to make them in advance and serve at Thanksgiving dinner, they are a show stopper! See more of my easy garnishes with photographs

Recipe Type: potato, garnish, yam, potato rose

Prep time: 15 min
Total Time: 15 min
Yield: 1 yam rose


1 Yam potato, peeled Butter Flavored Cooking Spray

   muffin tin or custard cup, greased
   2 plain flat wooden toothpicks


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Slice 10 to 15 yam slices crosswise 1/8-inch thick. Put slices into boiling salted water, lower temperature and simmer gently for 5 minutes.  Immediately plunge into an ice water bath to stop the cooking action; drain and pat slices dry.

On a flat surface overlap potato slices slightly in a long continuous row. Carefully roll them up, they are very fragile and break easily.

Secure the roll with plain toothpicks at the base in an "X" shape. Cut a thin slice off bottom end of roll to sit level. Spray or brush with melted butter; adjust yam slices to resemble a rose. Fit into a muffin tin or custard cup, you may have to shorten toothpicks. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes.

Remove toothpicks, serve on dinner plate with a meat entree.

Wine recommendation: Sauvignon Blanc; Pinot Noir
