Bourbon Sweet Potatoes

Vegetarian Recipe

Bourbon Sweet Potatoes have a combination of bourbon and butter with a touch of vanilla that give these a special twist for the holiday. The sweet potato deserves to be on the highest perch because it is a nutritional powerhouse!

Bourbon Sweet Potatoes


6 large sweet potatoes, peeled
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup bourbon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

Arrange sweet potatoes in a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

Combine sugar, butter, bourbon and vanilla extract in a large saucepan and heat to a boil. As soon as the sauce comes to a boil pour it over the sweet potatoes.

Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are soft.

Special Sweet Potatoes

  1. The skins of sweet potatoes, which are completely edible, add healthy fiber to your diet.
  2. There are two varieties of sweet potatoes: pale yellow with a dry flesh and dark orange with a moist flesh. The dark orange variety is plumper in shape and sweeter than the yellow variety.
  3. Sweet potatoes spoil rapidly. To keep them fresh, store them in a dry, cool (55-60 degrees) place such a cellar, pantry, or garage.
