Really good. My husband doesn't eat sweet potatoes and he liked it. My changes were to use 4 1/2 cups of potatoes, omit the white sugar entirely (sweet potatoes are already sweet) and use 1 1/2 T. of butter in the potato mixture instead of 3. I kept the topping as in the recipe. It's a flexible recipe. You could eat this for dessert.

I made this for holiday and wasn't impressed. No one really ate it. I will stick to traditional candy sweet potatos next year.

This was amazing! Everyone thought it was a hit! The hint of orange is what I think makes it so great. I only used 1/4 of the white sugar it called for and everyone said it would have been too sweet if I had used the amount of sugar the recipe calls for. Try using 1/8 cup of sugar instead of the stated 1/2 cup and see what you think.

I made this receipe for my boyfriend and his mother and father.....What raves I got about it. I baked the potatoes in the oven at 400 for an hour and then followed the receipe. I only add a little more cinnamon. This an absolutely great receipe for any time of the year.

Yummy and sweet, but sweet potatoes don't need this much sugar! I decreased the amount, but I felt it was still too sweet. Next time I'll only add 1/4 cup of brown sugar, if even that. Otherwise it was good!

If you are a sweet potatoe eater, you have to try this. Cut the sugar in half. It was delish. Great dish to take for potluck. YUMMY!!

Awesome! I made it without the nuts, as my husband is allergic, and was worried that it would negatively affect the taste, but it was fantastic!
