Sometimes around Thanksgiving, you just need to step away from the same old recipes and try something fresh.
Feeling bold this Thanksgiving? Here are some unusual Thanksgiving recipes to try…
- Bourbon-Laced Sweet Potatoes
- 6 medium sized Sweet Potatoes
- 1/4 cup of softened Butter
- 1/2 cup of firmly packed Brown Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 3 – 4 tablespoons of Bourbon
- 1/2 teaspoon of Ground Cinnamon
- 1/3 cup of Flaked Coconut
- 1/4 cup of Chopped Pecans
- 1/4 cup of firmly packed Brown Sugar
- 2 tablespoons of Butter
1 Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2 Wash the sweet potatoes
3 Bake the sweet potatoes for about 1 hour and then allow to cool
4 Cut a lengthwise strip off the top of each sweet potato and discard. Scoop out the pulp from each of them, leaving about 1/4 inch thick shells intact and put pulp in a large bowl.
5 Mash the sweet potato pulp.
6Add the softened butter and stir together. Then add 1/2 cup of brown sugar, egg, bourbon and cinnamon and whip everything together until the mixture is smooth.
7 Spoon the mixture back into the potato shells, creating little mounds.
8 In a small bowl, combine the flaked coconut, chopped pecans, the remaining brown sugar and butter until crumbly. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the sweet potatoes.
9 Bake the sweet potatoes at 350 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
Whenever you are relaxed, your mind functions well. When this happens, you have a better chance of creating fresh, new ideas for your business that you were just too worn out to think of before you took a break.
