These are oh-so-good! Love that bourbon flavor with the sweetness of the potatoes. And the hot sauce adds a subtle yummy spice without overpowering. Made for Please Review My Recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 400 degrees. Place potatoes on a large foil-lined baking sheet and bake until fork-tender, about 1 hour. When cool to the touch, peel and quarter the potatoes. (Can be covered and refrigerated overnight.).
  2. Place potatoes, cream, butter, bourbon, sugar, molasses and salt in small Dutch oven or soup kettle; mash ingredients together with potato masher. Bring mixture to a simmer over medium heat, reduce heat to low and cook, uncovered and stirring frequently, until potatoes are soft and thick, about 30 minutes. Stir in pepper sauce and nutmeg; adjust seasonings and serve.
