These Browned Butter Bourbon Skillet Sweet Potatoes feature sliced sweet potatoes that get drizzled with a bourbon-infused browned butter and roasted in the oven for the perfect crispy side dish for any occasion!
Thanksgiving, can you believe it’s right around the corner? 2020 sure has been a doozy of a year, so perhaps we aren’t all holidaying as we usually do, however, these Browned Browned Butter Bourbon Skillet Sweet Potatoes not only make a great Thanksgiving Dinner side dish to change up the traditional sweet potato casserole, but they can also be a delicious side for any occasion, really.
I’m always looking for side dishes, and in fact, I don’t have many on the Healthy Little Vittles blog, so I thought this would be a perfect recipe to add to my recipe index. They’re easy, they’re scrumptious, and they incorporate my new favorite ingredient, bourbon! Now, guys… I’m not a fan of drinking bourbon on its own. Dang, that stuff burns all the way down, lol, but when you incorporate it into your recipes, both savory and sweet, it offers the richest delicious flavor!
I also adore sweet potatoes. I think they might be my favorite food. I happened to find purple sweet potatoes at the store and just swoon over them, because hello! They’re purple! Haha, but if you can’t find them, feel free to just use regular sweets.
Now the key to getting these sweets to obtain that crispy outer layer is to slice them thin. Using a mandolin slicer definitely helps, but isn’t a requirement to make this recipe, just make sure your knife is sharp. You also want to make sure that you don’t pile in too many slices, you want to arrange the slices so that there’s space in between each slice so the bourbon browned butter sneaks in every nook and cranny.
If your a sweet potato fan like me, but trying to mix it up a bit this year, I hope you try these Browned Browned Butter Bourbon Skillet Sweet Potatoes! I would love to hear your thoughts on this dish so please leave a comment below and tag me on Instagram! @HealthyLittleVittles #HealthyLittleVittles
