Soooo, are you all set for the big day? Got your menu planned? Food shopping done? Dishes dusted off and ready to go?
Or…none of the above???
Since I know there are at least a FEW slackers out there (haha) I figured I’d post a super easy side dish that can be prepared in no time. You’ve probably got all the ingredients on hand already, and would just need to make a quick trip to the store for the potatoes.
It’s a nice switch from the run-of-the-mill sweet potato dish topped with marshmallows that you’ll find on most Thanksgiving tables. And best of all, it’s delicious!
Brandied Candied Sweet Potatoes
2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into large chunks
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup brandy
1/2 teaspoon salt
Add potatoes to boiling water and cook until fork tender. In a large skillet, melt butter. Stir in sugar, brandy and salt until smooth.
Drain potatoes and add to skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring gently, until potatoes are coated with glaze and heated through.
