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.


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.
