Bourbon Sweet Potatoes Recipe
Turkey with stuffing is just fine for Thanksgiving, but nothing comes close to a serving of these bourbon-spiked sweet spuds. As a kid, my uncle once told me I couldn’t have any because they had “firewater” in them. I’m pretty sure that was so he could have more for himself. Some people like a sticky marshmallow topping, but I think this version is a much better way to add a little spunk to the humble yam.
