It’s November and time to start planning out that Thanksgiving menu. We really liked these sweet potatoes and I can’t wait to make them again this year. I added marshmallows, because why not?! It’s tradition right? The amaretto added a nice flavor (any added alcohol to dishes is a bonus when you have extra family around!).
Amaretto Sweet Potatoes
(Adapted from Just A Pinch)
3 can(s) sweet potatoes or yams, 29 oz each
1/2 c light brown sugar (packed)

1/2 c amaretto liqueur
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c margarine, divided

Drain canned yams or sweet potatoes. Place in large mixing bowl. Add 2 tablespoons margarine. Place in microwave for 1 minute.
Mash potatoes and margarine with potato masher.
Melt remaining margarine. With an electric mixer, whip potatoes, margarine, sugars, juice, and amaretto.
