Wash root clean and bake 50 minutes in the oven with skin on at 150 degrees C.

Remove and allow to cool, cut in half and scoop out flesh and mash with butter, milk, salt and pepper to taste.

Put the mashed yam back in the skin and cook for 20 minutes (suggested toppings of cheese and or bacon and or herbs) make a delicious variation to this dish.
