Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by RogerOH

This is a great make ahead recipe for those big family get-to-gathers. I often mix them the day before, adding the marshmallows and baking the day of the feast. I believe they are much better if they are refrigerated overnight or as leftovers the next day.

My husband who doesn't like sweet potatoes liked these! I used fresh sweet potatoes I grew myself, brown sugar instead of white, and left out the marshmallows because it didn't really need the extra sweetness. Best sweet potatoes ever!
