“This recipe was been in the family for years, I don't know where it came from. The only thing I changed was amount of bourbon. If you prefer to use canned sweet potatoes, it takes three (18 ounce) cans.”

I love this recipe, my mother used to make it when I was a kid... she used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar! Try it..

This is the absolute BEST (and easiest) recipe for sweet potatoes I've found. I substituted brown sugar for the white & ended up having to bake it a bit longer. It was a HUGE hit, a MUST try even if you THINK you don't like sweet potatoes!

I made this for a crowd - it was a big hit - especially with my husband! I did make a couple of substitutions - I used 8 large potatoes and doubled the sauce. I used brown sugar and some honey - not quite 2 cups total but close. I stirred and turned the potatoes several times and sprinked the top with a little cinnamon. You couldn't taste a lot of liquor - just a hint which surprised me. It was clearly an adult sweet potato recipe - not the cloyingly sweet marshmallowy mess and we really, really liked this one. A real winner in our book.
