This was a really good recipe. I used fresh potatoes instead of canned for a change and it turned out great. I brought it to Thanksgiving last year for my in-laws and my mother-in-law just informed me that I'm bringing it again.
Even the people who said they didn't like sweet potatoes tried it and liked it.
I used real potatoes instead of canned ones. Although this recipe was good it tasted more like a desert to us than a potato side dish. It was very sweet!
I made these for Thanksgiving to take to a family member's house. Three other people ended up taking their own, and mine was the BEST one! I drained the potatoes, and added a little of the liquid after baking, before broiling. I didn't sprinkle them with marshmallows, but covered the entire top (I'm still a kid and love sweets). Everyone was asking what I did differently, why was theirs all mushy, and mine PERFECT! I was asked to make them for Christmas. This is the perfect, and quick way to make Sweet Potato Casserole. I made this on Thanksgiving day before going to the party, it is that quick!
I selected this recipe because I needed to make sweet potatoes for the "Fall Feast" at our daycare on a Tuesday at 6:30. I chose it specifically because the potatoes were canned and there were no nuts (day care). I DID drain the potatoes, and I think it's absolutely necessary, since you add orange juice. The texture was pleasing (not all whipped up and soufle-like) and the kids AND adults enjoyed it. Very sweet (they ARE sweet potatoes) and I think I might decrease the marshmallows next time. Really, really worked out well.
These are good enough to pass for a dessert. I too, was unsure if I should drain the yams, but I did. Good choice otherwise it likely would have been soupy. The OJ is a such a nice touch - I lightly mashed the yams and let them marinate a half hour to better absorb the flavor, if you're concerned about presentation just lightly score the yams. Next time I may try apricot nectar.
Taste just like Grandma use to make! I made this lastnight, with a pork roast and green beans, turned out so good. I used fresh sweet potatos, baked them for 45 on 350, peeled the skin, then diced. I did everything else the same. My whole family loved it, including my six year old son who hates everything!!
My husband loved these and he doesn't even like sweet potatoes! I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 brown sugar.
Wasn't sure if the sweet potatoes had to be drained, but I included the liquid. It was different and good. I probably would try again.
