Cheese Stuffed Yellow Yams with Turmeric Mayo

Winter weather, couch, movies and this recipe… You are welcome.



6-8 pieces


40 minutes




1/2 Lb. Yellow Yam

2 Pcs Egg

1 Tbsp Salt

1 Tsp Water

1 Tsp Onion Powder

2 Tbsp Honey

1/4 Cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1/4 Cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese

1/4 Cup Mayonnaise

1 Pc Turmeric


1) Bring water to a boil in a pot.

2) Peel and slice the yellow yams in 1 inch pieces and cook them in the water.

IMPORTANT: Once sliced, the yams will start turning brown immediately. If they are not placed directly into the boiling water or in under 1 minute, you will need a bowl with cold water to keep them from going bad.

3) Cook the yams for approximately 10-12 minutes, or until very soft.

4) Remove from the water, mash with a whisk or a potato masher.

5) Add the egg, honey, salt, pepper and onion powder and mix.

6) Spread the mix in a flat tray and allow cooling down for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.

7) Mix both cheeses and make 1-2 oz balls.

8) Cut 2-3 inch squares, place the cheese ball in the middle and close shaping as a ball.

9) Peel the turmeric (reserve a small piece) and shred with a cheese grater. Mix with the mayonnaise. Chop the remaining turmeric very small and use as garnish.
