Teacup’s Filet Mignayam with Mushroom Sauce

Teacup's Filet Mignayam with Mushroom Sauce
Recipe By:
  • 2-3 large yams
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • Cumin
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Green onion, chopped
  1. Bake, boil or steam yams until tender in their skins. Or you can cut into 2-3” round slices. If using canned yams, drain off syrup.
  2. If you cut into thick slices, I place on foiled baking sheet and bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes or until tender. Remember you will continue to cook them with the bacon. So you don’t want to over cook them.
  3. I like to under cook my yams that are cut ahead of time.
  4. Take bacon and cook in microwave. Do not cook all the way through. I usually cook half the time required.
  5. Cut bacon in two thin strips.
  6. Wrap each yam with bacon. It make take 2 slices to go all the way around. Secure with toothpick.
  7. Place in shallow pan and drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with cumin and black pepper and a little salt and place in 350 oven for 10 minutes or bacon is finished cooking.
  8. Serve with MUSHROOM SAUCE
