Make bourbon-maple sweet potatoes in the slow cooker, and free up the oven for your holiday dinner
It doesn't get much better than sweet potatoes slow-cooked in bourbon, maple syrup and butter.
Wait a minute — it does get better. Especially when the sweet potatoes are mashed and topped with super-easy, homemade candied cashews. Oh, and of course, served hot and topped with just a bit more butter.
All the flavors going on in these sweet potatoes taste so good, and the bonus is that the slow cooker does most of the work.
What a beautiful and appetizing side dish to make for the holidays. Either sweet potatoes or yams can be used for this recipe. I like to add in some yams along with the sweet potatoes to give the dish a brighter color. But no matter which ones are used, these mashed potatoes are sure to please.
