Glazed Sweet Potatoes that are a Little Southern

Print Email

6 sweet potatoes or yams
1 cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup bourbon
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 lemon, grated zest

Preheat oven to 350° F. Boil the potatoes until almost tender. Butter a shallow ovenproof baking dish. When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes and cut into ½ inch thick slices. Place in the prepared baking dish.

In a small saucepan, dissolve the brown sugar in the bourbon over moderate heat. Add the melted butter and lemon zest. Pout the glaze over the potatoes and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until glazed and heated through.

Serves 8 to 10
