Southern Comfort Yams or Sweet Potatoes--Easy and Yummy

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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil yams in water, on stove, until soft.
  2. After Yams are cool to touch, peel them, cut into thick chunks and put aside in 8 x 8 glass dish.
  3. Put rest of ingredients in deep non-stick saucepan.
  4. Cook over medium-high until the alcohol has boiled off ( smell gone)-stir constantly-this should take about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Pour mixture over set aside yams.
  6. Bake at 350 F until dish is bubbly.
  7. Let sit a few minutes before serving.

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.

Great flavour & pretty easy to make. This recipe gets 5 for taste but only 3 for clear recipe instructions. There are not cooking times listed or suggested so you're pretty much on your own. I ended up steaming my yams (covered) too long, they probably only need about 5 mins to soften. As for the oven I baked, covered(?), for about 30 mins. I cut back the sauce and still had plenty (that may be cause my yams were overcooked & didn't soak up too much sauce). Regardless they tasted great and I won't make the same mistakes next time.
