Good morning guys! Thanksgiving is in just a few days y’all! So exciting! Tomorrow Walker and I leave for California to spend the Holiday with my family. We’ve celebrated Easter, Mother’s and Father’s Day together, but this is our first “big” holiday we’re spending together and I honestly could not be more thrilled to be doing so! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and to have who I am most thankful for celebrating with me is just a dream come true!
Today I am sharing mine and my mom’s boozy sweet potato casserole recipe. We love putting booze in everything we make, so our sweet ‘taters are no exception! And let me tell you, these are AMAZING!

Boozy Sweet Potato Casserole
2 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3)
1 orange, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup of spiced rum
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Put the sweet potatoes on a sheet tray and roast for 35 to 40 minutes.
While the sweet potatoes are baking make the topping. In a food processor, brown sugar, olive oil, butter, and walnuts .
Pulse until mixture comes together.
Once the potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel them and cut them into 1-inch chunks. Discard the skins.
Put the potatoes into a large dish and add the remaining ingredients. Mash together with a potato masher until well combined.
Transfer the mixture to a 2-quart casserole dish.
Crumble the topping mixture over the potatoes.
Bake 30 minutes.
