"Sweet potato casserole flavored with Tennessee whiskey, brown sugar, and topped with candied pecans. A rich and comforting take on a classic holiday dish that has been in my family for years. We've had it at Thanksgiving for as long as I can remember. For best results make sure potatoes are drained of as much water as possible."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water until tender, about 7 minutes; drain. Transfer potatoes to a large mixing bowl; mash with a potato masher until smooth. Add 3/4 cup brown sugar, Tennessee whiskey, 1/4 cup softened butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the potatoes; stir to incorporate. Spread mixture into a 1-quart casserole dish.
  3. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a small skillet over low heat. Stir 3/4 cup brown sugar into the melted butter until incorporated. Add pecans to skillet; cook and stir until the pecans are completely coated in the butter mixture, 2 to 3 minutes. Top sweet potato mixture with the pecans.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until browned around the edges, about 25 minutes.



I've had this dish several times now and it's always fantastic & a crowd-pleaser. It has just the right amount of crunch thanks to the pecans and the whiskey nicely rounds out the flavor profile.
