Recipe Southern Sweet Mashed Potatoes The Wave Contemporary Resort

Yield: 4 servings


2 cups diced sweet potatoes
2 tablespoons whole butter
4 tablespoons heavy cream
2 teaspoons brown sugar
pinch of salt
pinch of black pepper
3 tablespoons Jim Beam Bourbon

Method of Preparation:

Steam sweet potatoes until well cooked. While potatoes are cooking, place butter, sugar, cream and cook off bourbon on a small pot and heat up. When potatoes are done, place in oven for 5 minutes or so to get some of the moisture out of them. Place potatoes in a mixer with the whip attachment and whip away. Add cream mixture and then season with salt and pepper and taste. Re-season with more salt, pepper or Jim Beam as you see fit.
