Browned Butter Bourbon Skillet Sweet Potatoes by @HealthyLittleVittles ❤️ A simple yet tasty way to enjoy your sweet potatoes! Check out the recipe below 🍠
2-3 very large sweet potatoes (you can use purple and orange sweet potatoes or just orange)
1 stick (1/2 cup) plant/vegan butter
1/4 cup bourbon
3 fresh thyme sprigs, plus more for garnishing if desired
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Peel the sweet potatoes, and then cut the potatoes in half. Preferably using a mandoline slicer, slice your sweet potatoes into 1/4-1/2 inch thick slices, then set aside.
In your large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
**NOTE: if you have a light-colored skillet that is better to use so you can tell when your butter is browned. Otherwise, I would say this takes about 5 minutes.
Once the butter is melted, add the thyme sprigs and allow the butter to brown, whisking occasionally.
Slowly add the bourbon to the skillet and whisk. Allow the bourbon to infuse into the butter for just about a minute or two.
**NOTE: once the butter starts to turn brown, keep an eye on it as it will burn quickly.
Remove from heat and carefully pour the bourbon browned butter into a measuring cup.
To the same skillet, layer the sweet potatoes in an alternating pattern, starting around the outside of the pan moving toward the center.
Whisk the butter in the measuring cup, then pour it over the potatoes evenly.
Roast in the oven for 35-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and let them cool for 10 minutes before serving.
**NOTE: certain vegan butters bubble up and foam, this will go down as you let them cool.
