Here is a simple delicious side dish perfect for the coming Fall season and holidays or just because.
I love sweet potatoes, baked, fried, mashed, in a casserole but these oh my goodness. These may be my new favorite.Bake 4 medium to large sweet potatoes, 350 degrees for 45 minutes
slice in half and scoop out the middle, leave some on the sides
place in a baking dish
the scooped out potato goes into a bowl, add a dash of nutmeg, 3 TBSP butter, 1/8 cup of milk or heavy cream, salt and 3 TBSP of brown sugar. Mix with an electric mixer. Scoop into the hulled out potatoes.
In a sauce pan, 1/2 cup brown sugar, dash of nutmeg, 3 TBSP butter, 2 oz Evan Williams white label bourbon or whatever brand you prefer and 1/2 tsp of molasses. Cook on low until it begins to thicken. Too long and it becomes candy.
Spoon the glaze over the potatoes and pop in the oven 350 degrees for 20 minutes
