Kentucky Bourbon Sweet Potatoes Recipe

Step 1

Fresh sweet potatoes, cooked until soft and then peeled, can be substituted for the vacuum packed ones. Don't use drained, canned in syrup as they are too moist.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350.

Step 3

Put sweet potatoes in a large heavy saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until heated through.

Step 4

Mash sweet potatoes. Add sugar, bourbon, butter and vanilla; beat until well blended. Turn into a 2-quart, shallow baking dish. Sprinkle marshmallows over top.

Step 5

Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes, or until marshmallows are golden.
