Dan and Steve started their catering business, The Hearty Boys, out of an 8'x8' apartment kitchen in Chicago.

  • 9 pounds sweet potatoes
  • 3/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 3 teaspoons lemon zest
  • Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
  • 6 tablespoons bourbon
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

Roast the potatoes in a 375 degree oven for 1 - 1 1/2 hours or until they are very soft and caramelized. Let cool a bit and then peel the skin away. Using the stand mixer, place in a large mixing bowl and mix with a paddle attachment. Add the remaining ingredients and mix until smooth.
