Bourbon-Mashed Sweet Potatoes from Emeril
Updated: Jan 3
Here is another great side dish from Emeril. This is usually served with Pork Chops at Emeril’s, but it is a good replacement for potatoes with any dish.
1 3/4 to 2 pounds Sweet Potaotes
1/2 cup Heavy Cream
1/4 cup Bourbon Whiskey
2 tablespoons Light Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Molasses
1/8 teaspoon Salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place the potatoes on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake until tender and starting to ooze sugary surup, about 1 hour and 15 minutes, depending on the size. Remove from the oven and let sit until cool enough to handle.
Cut a slit down each potato and scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Discard the skins. Add the cream, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and salt and beat on high speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Cover to keep warm, or gently reheat before serving.
