Weird bake my mother in law cooks, that my wife totally loves. She usually does this for Christmas time.

Recipe Ingredients for "Yuccos"

1/4 pound bacon
1 pound yucca root
2 eggs
1/4 pound cheese

Recipe Directions for "Yuccos"

  1. Peel and cook the yucca root by boiling it in water until it is thoroughly soft. Yucca root can be stringy in the core, do not use the core of the root for that, the outer layers is what you will use. Once cooked, let it cool down and cut into 1 inch pieces.

  2. While the yucca cools, get the bacon going until it is almost cooked, just before it becomes crunchy. Chop the bacon in little pieces.

  3. Preheat the oven at 350 F.

  4. Mix the yucca and the bacon and grind it together.

  5. Once you have the yucca-bacon paste, mix it with the eggs and cheese.

  6. Form into small 1 inch balls or "drops" and put on a greased baking sheet.

  7. Put in the oven until the balls are golden brown.
