Crown Royal is a blended Canadian whiskey and the men on both sides of our family love it; especially during the holidays.  It’s a little too strong for my taste, but when I first made this recipe back in 2011 (it’s even in my cookbook) my family loved them so much, I now have to make them every Thanksgiving and sometimes on Christmas; which is also my brother in laws request since his birthday is also on Christmas day.

I’m not sure why I make these potatoes so infrequently throughout the year. They’re AH-MAZING!!! Maybe it’s because I do associate them with being for a special occasion; however they’re so simple to make, I think I’m going to start making them more often.

For this recipe, you’ll need fresh sweet potatoes, Crown Royal whiskey, butter, milk, brown sugar, cinnamon and a little salt. I prefer to use fresh sweet potatoes and cook them myself instead of the canned variety; which are frequently packed in syrup and super sweet. Also, they can be called yams, but they’re really the same thing.

Sweet potatoes come in many different colors. The skin can be white, yellow, red, purple or brown, and the flesh can be white, yellow, orange or purple. I made these breakfast potatoes a few years back and though the picture is pretty bad, they were really good; though a bit sweeter than the orange flesh sweet potato I’m used to.

Start by peeling your sweet potatoes; then cut them into 2-inch pieces. Place them in a pot; then add cold water. Bring them to a boil and cook the potatoes until they are fork tender; approximately 15-20 minutes depending on the size. Drain the water; then add the remaining ingredients to the pan. Blend together with an electric mixer; which makes the potatoes extra creamy.
