Browned Butter Bourbon Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Happy Thanksgiving!!

This post will be short and sweet because I really need to go shower and get ready for the big day of eating.

I made this delicious goodness as my contribution to both of the dinners we will be going to today. One is for Nick’s side of the family and the other is for mine…I’m still trying to get my Russian family to fall in love with sweet potato dishes. We’ll see what they think about it this year. All I have to say is this dish smells absolutely delish!

Here are the steps that I took…first peel, coarsely chop and boil the potatoes.

Then make the butter, bourbon and brown sugar mixture. (Looks like I forgot to take a pic of this step…ooopsies)

After you mash the potatoes with the sweet, alcoholic butter mixture, layer the mashed potatoes with the chopped pecans. Repeat once more.

And viola! You’re done! Yay!

Here’s the recipe if you decide to save this one for next year…or just a random dinner.

Enjoy your day and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families!

Shower time 🙂
