This is a favorite of ours for many years because it is different from the many mashed sweet potatoes recipes. Originally submitted to ThanksgivingRecipe.com.

I substituted dark rum for the brandy. I also put chopped pecans mixed with brown sugar on top and baked it at 350 for 30 minutes. It is delicious!

Delicious and different! My son and I really enjoyed these. I agree with some of the other reviewers that you have to cook the sauce down till it loses that strong alcohol flavor and develops a glaze-like consistency. Best sweet potato recipe I've ever tried - definitely a keeper for me!

I made it three times over the Thanksgiving holiday (three different Thanksgivings... mmmmmm) and every time, people wanted the recipe. Its delicious, and I recommend cooking it longer than the recipe says by an extra 20-30 minutes.
