Review This Recipe
I made this dish for thanksgiving and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it!!!
This was a great side dish! I made this for an everyday dinner, but would not hesitate to make it for Thanksgiving! I didn't use the rum, since I didn't have any, and it was still delicious. Also, to make things easier, I microwaved the potatoes instead of boiling them and then mashed them! I don't even care for sweet potatoes, but I liked this dish!
Great side dish!
I made this recipe the first time for my Thanksgiving dinner. Out of all of the food I made this was the one dish that had zero leftovers! Simple - yet delicious.
