Sweet Potato Bourbon Mash

Default Image
We use the light yellow sweet potatoes rather than the red variety. This produces a lighter less watery dish.

  • Serves8, 1/2 cup servings

Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 to 2 pounds sweet potaes (yellow variety, not the Ruby red)
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 1/2 cup heavy cream
    • 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
    • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons molasses
    • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Bake until tender and starting to ooze sugary syrup, about 1 hour and 15 minutes, depending upon their size. Remove from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle.

Cut a slit down each potato and scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Discard the skins. Add the cream, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and salt and beat on high speed with an electric mixer until smooth.

Cover to keep warm, or gently reheat before serving.
