Yam with Cheese and Bacon Bits

I’m back. 🙂

Lorna cooked up a storm in the South Arm Community Centre cooking class. We used to only make a dish or two during the classes. This time she made a record breaking four dishes. I like this because it gives me more materials to blog about! When we first started our blog, we always mulled over what we want to blog for the next day but today, we had almost one month worth of blog postings waiting to be posted. So, Ben had been insisting that we release more blog entries every day but no-can-do!

I digressed, the dishes prepared were:

  • Banana Shrimp Cake
  • Fried Fish Fillet with Guava and Fermented Soy Beans
  • Arctic Surf Clams, and
  • Yam with Cheese and Bacon Bits.

Just the names alone sounds so appetizing, doesn’t it? Well, it sounds good, it looks better and let me tell you, it tastes great!


We had a mini buffet after the cooking class. All the dishes were so absolutely yummy. I was so full that I had to skip my dinner that day.


The first dish is very simple and quick to make — it is called Yam with Cheese and Bacon Bits. Lorna told us that she makes this as breakfast for her family.

The whole yam is microwaved until it is soft and is then top with cheese and bacon bits. If you have more time, the yam can be baked in the oven until it caramelized and becomes very sweet.


I will post the recipes for the rest of the cooking Lorna demonstrated over the next few days. Lorna, thanks for sharing such great recipes. We surely learned a lot today.

    hi Chubbypanda,
    The cucumber garnish is very simple to make; you cut the cucumber at an angle without cutting all the way to the end, leaving like 1 cm and the number of cuts has to be odd numbers. Fold the 2nd, 4th, etc cuts to form letter ‘n’ and there you are, a simple to make garnish for your plate.

    Hi Jenny,

    Can you share your yam pudding recipe? I’m sure there are lots of people out there who love simple to make and yet yummy recipe like me, 🙂
