Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Scrub potatoes and prick with fork; place on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake 40 minutes or until tender. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.

  • When potatoes are cool enough to handle, scrape pulp from skin. Transfer to bowl. Mash with 2 tablespoons of the butter and 3/4 teaspoon of the salt. Stir in cheese, bourbon, cream, and 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar. Transfer to buttered 1-1/2-quart casserole. Cover; bake 30 minutes or until heated through.

  • Meanwhile, in microwave-safe 2-quart casserole combine remaining butter, brown sugar, and salt. Add onion. Microcook on 100% power (high), for 3 to 4 minutes or until onion is crisp-tender. Add apples. Cover and microcook 2 minutes more or until apple is tender. Stir in thyme and pepper. Serve with sweet potatoes. Serves 8.
