"Sweet potatoes with orange and bourbon. I use 1/2 cup sugar but if you prefer candied sweet potatoes, use the whole cup. Orange juice can be substituted for the bourbon if you are serving to small children." — Waneta

I have made this recipe just as it is (except with a little less bourbon :) or have combined it with a sweet potato souffle recipe and it has been phenomenal both ways. Whenever Thanksgiving comes around my friends are constently asking for the recipe. To combine it with a souffle recipe I simply fold in one or two eggs and add about a teaspoon of vanilla to the recipe. I then add a crubled pecan topping that consists of pecans, brown sugar, and butter. Yum!!
This was ok, I have a better one that I use all the time and want to keep the best so will discard this one.
Loved it and so did my family. It's now my favorite recipe for sweet potatoes!
Great dish! I loved the addition of the orange flavor and zest in sweet potatoes! No bourbon and don't need marshmallows - it's sweet enough. Maybe candied pecans on top would give it a nice crunch?
These are excellent smashed sweet potatoes. I omitted the marshmallows and bourbon. Instead of juicing an orange, I just used a quarter cup of orange juice. I also roasted the potatoes before blending in the butter and spices. Then I only baked them for about ten minutes. Tasted so incredibly delicious. Thank you - I will use this recipe again.
This was very, very good - I used the orange juice instead of the bourbon and it turned out great - thanks for the recipe!
These were good - my 2 yr old ate them right up, so that was great.
