Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Bourbon Sweet Potatoes created by Nimz_

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!

    I forget to rate these. I made these for Thanksgiving and they were awesome. I used 5 large sweet potatoes. I boiled them first. I did not mash them but sliced them about 1/2 inch or a little thicker. I then followed the recipe. I also added a more bourbon probable 1/2 cup. They were delicious. Thanks Roger/OH for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

    We did this recipe for Thanksgiving it was great. My husband the chef2b and I aren't sweet potatoe lovers but liked these. Only thing we changed was to add 1/2c orange juice and we used brown sugar instead of regular. The "smell" of Bourbon, we used Woodford Reserve was over whelming but well liked by family members. They joked who neeeds a drink with these around. We will be making these again for Christmas.

    This was a delicious recipe, thank you for sharing. I peeled some sweet potatoes then sliced them and poured the sweet mixture over them. All I had was some Southern Comfort but I will tell you it came out delicious. There were no leftovers!

    I was going to post this exact recipe, but found it already posted. I got the recipe at an office Thanksgiving pot luck several years ago, and it has become a turkey-day family tradition ever since. I highly recommend this dish. Be sure to use quality Kentucky bourbon.
