Southern Comfort Yams or Sweet Potatoes--Easy and Yummy

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by petlover

I made up this recipe with a bunch of things we had on hand... it tastes wonderful. Don't worry about the alcohol content for kids- the alcohol cooks off ( well most of it anyway) leaving only the southern comfort taste.

This was a big hit at our Thanksgiving get together. The Southern Comfort gave it a very nice mellow flavor - I think this is going to become a regular on our menu.
