sweet potatoes, peeled and quartered
I tried this recipe when I couldn't find my standard marshmallow-topped recipe for
sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. I actually like this version better than my own!
It is very easy to throw together, and the orange juice really compliments the flavor
well! An added bonus that is a family tradition in my house - the little ones are given
the responsiblity of putting the miniature marshmallows in PERFECT rows on top of
the mashed sweet potatoes. It gives them something to do, makes them feel as if
they helped prepare the Thanksgiving meal also (what smiles when you tell them what
a great job they did!) and it keeps them out of your hair for at least 15-20 minutes
while they are busy at the table! My six year old son loved doing it! I am 45 years old
and this has been my job at Thanksgiving since I was about his age. Some family traditions
never change- just the recipe gets better!
I thought 1 cup of orange juice was too much. Next time I'll only add half a cup. And maybe a tablespoon or 2 of brown sugar. The orange flavor overpowered the potatoes too much.
I used raw honey and brown sugar substitute instead of sugar. My husband said they were the best mashed sweet potatoes he's ever had and he had some a week ago that he loved at the Grand Lux Cafe (that's why I wanted to make some). This was my first time ever making home made mashed potatoes of any kind. I loved them. Easy and delicious. My husband thought they were better than candied yams too.
My husband wanted to know what the special occasion was! I used honey and brown sugar in place the white sugar. I did not have any marshmallows though. Still, it was great! I can't wait to serve this at the holidays to family!
Tastes as it should. Orange juice is a nice touch, and I found the 1 cup to be about the right amount.
This was fantastic! I've never eaten sweet potatoes until I met my fiance, and I'm trying to make the things that he likes - and boy did he like these! Said they were better than his mom's! I substituted the honey and brown sugar for the white sugar. I would use less OJ next time. And be careful where your oven rack is placed...marshmallows go up in flame!
I made this for Thanksgiving. There's too much OJ and not enough sugar. No one ate seconds and most didn't finish their first serving.
i love the opportunity to maximize my veggie co-op! i baked my sweet potatoes at 400 for 50 minutes so the skins came off easily, then mashed with brown sugar and fresh-squeezed OJ. cut the butter in half. and in a rare moment of good behavior, skipped the marshmallows. flavors complement well, would've been AMAZING with the marshmallows!
