I would like to share this bourbon glazed sweet potato recipe with you from Ashlee who blogs at The Crunchy Moose.  Ashlee is a bit of a math nerd with a degree in mathematics and a masters in finance.  She used to own and operate a clothing store that she recently sold and is now taking time to relax and volunteer on an organic vegetable farm.  Enjoy this sweet potato recipe while it’s still winter.

This is a Thanksgiving staple in my family! My mother-in-law has been making it for several years. This year, I made Thanksgiving dinner and this was the first side item I put on the menu.

BOURBON GLAZED SWEET POTATOES

 

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven at 375. Bake the sweet potatoes for 1 hour until tender (whole, unpeeled, do not pierce holes). Peel the potatoes. Slice in thick 1/2″ slices.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan on medium heat. Add the nuts, spices, sweetener, and salt. Bring to a simmer for 5 minutes. Add the bourbon. Simmer for 5 more minutes. You will have a syrupy (but thin) sauce. Set the sauce aside.
  3. Peel, core, and slice the apples in thick 1/2″ slices.
  4. Butter a 9×13 casserole dish. Layer the sweet potatoes and apples in the dish, alternating.
  5. Top the potatoes and apples with the sauce. Bake for 30 minutes. It is done when the apples are tender.
