Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Scrub the sweet potatoes, prick them deeply in several places with a fork, and place them on the lined cookie sheet.
  3. Bake the potatoes in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Allow them to cool until they can be handled, about 15 minutes. Scoop out the sweet potato flesh into a large bowl and mash well. Stir in orange juice, brown sugar, margarine, orange peel, and cinnamon. If you prefer the sweet potatoes to be very smooth, you can mix them with an electric mixer. Spread the potatoes in a microwave-safe dish.
  4. Microwave on HIGH until heated through, about 5 minutes.

I mashed a couple tablespoons of butter into the sweet potatoes and used butter instead of margerine for the topping I mixed a 1/4 cup of oatmeal with the brown sugar and added a handful of chopped walnuts), and added nutmeg and cinnamon. Other than that, I kept everything the same. Simple but oh, so good. TIP: Use fresh squeezed orange juice with just a tbsp. orange juice concentrate stirred in. It's lovely.



I really enjoyed this recipe. It was delicious. There was a lot of orange flavor which I really enjoyed. The only change I made was that I boiled the potatoes instead of baking them to save some time. I will make this again

Very nice. I boiled the potatoes and didn't have any orange peels, but I quite enjoyed the result!
