Fried Yam Sticks
|Vegetable oil||1 Teaspoon|
On baking sheet bake yam at 400Â°F until just tender, 35 to 40 minutes (do not overbake); let yam cool, then peel and discard skin.
Cut potato into 2 x 1/4-inch sticks; weigh 6 ounces (any remaining yam can be frozen for use at another time).
In 9-inch skillet combine margarine and oil and heat until margarine is bubbly and hot; add yam sticks and cook over medium heat, turning frequently with pancake turner, until crispy outside and tender inside.
Serve sprinkled with salt.
