I make this almost every Thanksgiving or Christmas, depending on how full my table is because Grandma taught me how to make it and it's just tradition and comfort for me. I use butter instead of margerine and I add a bit of nutmeg along with the cinnamon and I just kind of eyeball it. I also use fresh orange juice and a bit of fresh orange rind. Grandma taught me to stir in a handful or two of marshmallows into the mashed sweet potatoes before topping with the remaining marshmallows so you get some in with your casserole, too. Good stuff. Grandma added pecans, too, but my family isn't big on nutty sweet potatoes. Weirdos. ;)
