This is my own recipe I created one Christmas.
I love the flavor of Brandy or Rum in recipes. Especially during the holidays.

How to Make Spirted Sweet Potatoes or Yams


  1. Do NOT drain the sweet potatoes or yams.

    Butter a casserole dish. Add the sweet potatoes or Yams, butter, brandy or rum, salt, orange peel, and pepper. Mix slightly.
  2. Mix all the topping ingredients together. Top the sweet potatoes.
  3. Cover the casserole and bake at 350* for 30 mintues. Uncovered and bake for another 10 minutes.
    Serve hot.
  4. I ran out of brown sugar one time...and used maple sugar. Came out just as good.
