Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Sweet PotatoesThis is a recipe that I have been waiting to try for years, but I always seem to go back to my original recipe.  I’m in Vegas, at my Mother’s for the holidays, and decided to make this last week.  It was good, but if I made it again, I would use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar the recipe uses.

If you’re looking for something new for sweet potatoes, I recommend giving this a try!
