Sweet Potato & Rum Bake - Recipe

This recipe makes the best sweet potatoes you will ever have, seriously.

Mmm.. sweet potatoes.

You never taste the rum and it just makes the sweetness in the potatoes burst!

This is the only way I will eat mashed sweet potatoes, no marshmallows for me. (That’s just wrong. IMHO)

I know it is a bit late to make them for your Thanksgiving dinner but now you can plan to give them a try for the next round of holidays, a party or even just to try the recipe.

BTW- This is easy enough to make that you can reduce it down so that it just serves one.
