Thank you to Chef Matt Storch of Match Restaurant in South Norwalk for this next Thanksgiving recipe, Jack Daniels Whipped Sweet Potatoes w/ Brown Butter, Maple Syrup & Goat Cheese. Excuse me...I think I may have just drooled on my keyboard.

Jack Daniels Whipped Sweet Potatoes w/ Brown Butter, Maple Syrup & Goat Cheese
Makes for 8
8 each Sweet potatoes peeled and rough chopped
½ cup Jack Daniels…flamed in a pan BE CAREFUL!!!
¼ lb Butter
¼ cup Maple Syrup
2 T Molasses
½ lb Goat Cheese
Boil Sweet Potatoes in Water I usually do 1 per person for the correct amount of leftovers!
When the Sweet potatoes are fork tender or soft, drain the water and add butter, Jack Daniels, maple syrup, molasses, salt and pepper. Mix with a hand blender or beater until smooth.
Place the sweets in a baking dish and cover the top by sprinkling on the goat cheese
Place un covered in a 450 degree oven for 5 minutes or until the goat cheese is caramelized
You can mix the sweet potatoes ahead of time and re-heat but do not put goat cheese on until the potatoes have been re-heated!
