Bourbon Sweet Potato Casserole

Yield 8 to 10 servings
Thanksgiving isn't complete without a warm, marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole on the dinner table.

Ingredients

  • 6 medium-size sweet potatoes (about 3 pounds)
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup miniature marshmallows

How to Make It

  1. Cook sweet potatoes in boiling water to cover 30 minutes or until tender. Drain. Let cool to touch; peel and mash potatoes.

  2. Combine mashed sweet potato, brown sugar, and next 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer until smooth. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 1 1/2-quart casserole.

  3. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with marshmallows and bake 5 additional minutes or until marshmallows are golden.
