Sweet Potato Ham Roll Ups

A great dish for Holidays and special occasions.

·         2 medium sweet potatoes or 2 medium yams
·         3 tablespoons butter, melted
·         ½ C crushed pineapple, drain and reserve juice
·         ¼ C pecans, chopped
·         ½ C cracker crumbs  
·         3 tablespoons brown sugar
·         2 lbs ham slices, slices of your favorite deli-ham. Have them slice it thick enough to wrap around something without falling apart. An eighth-inch is about right.
·         ¾  C pineapple juice
·         ¼ C Shredded Coconut, firmly packed

1.      Bake sweet potatoes wrapped in foil (crimped side up) until tender.
2.      Peel and mash.
3.      Add butter, pineapple, nuts, crumbs and brown sugar; mix well.
4.      Preheat oven to 350°F.
5.      Spread a thick layer of filling on each ham slice; roll as for a jelly roll, lay in pan against one another so they don’t unroll.
6.      Place in a baking dish; pour pineapple juice over and sprinkle the top with coconut
7.      Cover with foil.
8.      Bake (1 hour for smoked ham and 20 minutes for boiled ham).
