I took a gamble and made this for Thanksgiving without "testing" the recipe first, and am happy I did. This is such yummy sweet potato casserole! I doubt I'll try another recipe again, this one was perfect! I added a little more brown sugar, so it was like a dessert. A little tip is that if you stir in a cup of mini marshmallows before putting this in the baking dish and stir them around a little you have marshmallow surprises throughout the casserole and not just on top. Thanks for this recipe!
This was ok. Nothing crazy and will probably not make it again unless I have all of my nephews/nieces over for Thanksgiving. Didn't make any changes to the recipe. I wasn't sure what the right amount was for 5 potatoes as they clearly vary in size. I had 5 huge ones but only ended up using 4. Also, I used a 9x9 dish and the recipe roughly filled it about 2.5 inches high (without the topping).
I added 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp *fresh* nutmeg, and 1 tsp orange peel spice. Wonderful! 5 sweet potatoes doesn't make enough for a 13x9x2" pan though - use a 1 1/2 qt. casserole dish instead. If you want to use a 13x9x2" dish, use 9 slim sweet potatoes, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1/2 tsp. fresh nutmeg, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 1/2 tsp. orange peel spice, and 1/4 cup butter. Thanks for the recipe!
This recipe is really good. The second time I made it, I used half the amount of orange juice, and I preferred it this way. The entire amount of oj overpowered the sweet potatoes. You can make this a day ahead and refrigerate. Bring to room temp., heat covered for 30 min., uncover and add marshmallows and cook for 10 more minutes. When reheating leftovers, you also have to add fresh marshmallows. This is really a yummy recipe!
Made this for Christmas and even the pickiest eaters loved it. One tip, I made it with drained canned yams to save time and effort. Delicious!
My family has done a variation of this recipe for as long as I can remeber. It's great. Important to note that using an electric mixer is important for removing all of the strings from the potatoes, so dont shake the forks off. Also, if preparing hours in advance, dont't put the marshmellows on to bake. wait until 5mins before serving, stick them on and put dish in to brown for 3 to 5 mins.
We've been making this dish for YEARS! It is an old holiday favourite that we all look forward to each and every year. The only variations that we make are to add a tiny bit of nutmeg and we also don't use a mixer on the sweet potatoes after they have been boiled. We prefer to have it less "mushy" and with a bit more texture.
Great. My only suggestion would be to halve the orange juice since I felt that the original amount was a little overpowering. No one else noticed so maybe I did just because I knew it was there!
