This is a super change from the normal grungey yams and marshmallow things!! The bourbon cooks out and leaves only its terrific flavor (and you know lots of us Southerners like our li'l nip o' bourbon).
Serves: About 4
Prep.Time: 30 minutes
1 can Sweet Potatoes (40-oz.) -- drained
1/4 cup Butter
1/4 cup Orange Juice
1/4 cup Bourbon
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
pinch ground Cloves
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place potatoes in a greased 13x9x2 baking dish. In a small saucepan, combine remaining ingredients; simmer 5-8 minutes until well-blended. Pour sauce over potatoes; cover and bake 15 minutes. Uncover; bake 15 minutes.
note: This can be prepared a day ahead, stored covered in the fridge, and re-heated either in the oven or microwave the next day.
