This Nashville-inspired sweet potato dish fits in fine on the holiday table, showcasing the simplicity of sweet potatoes dressed up with bourbon.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Peel, wash, and quarter the sweet potatoes. Place them in a stockpot, add enough water to cover them by 2 inches, and bring them to a boil. Continue boiling them until they are fork-tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and transfer them to a large bowl.
- Add the butter, cream, bourbon, orange juice, orange zest, brown sugar, salt, and nutmeg, and mash everything together with a potato masher or an electric mixer. Spoon the sweet potato mixture into a casserole dish, and top it with pecan halves. Bake it for 30 minutes.
