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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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!! Read More

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. Read More

My husband loved these and he doesn't even like sweet potatoes! I used 1/2 sugar and 1/2 brown sugar. Read More

These were very good. The only thing that I might change next time is cut the butter in half. There seemed to be quite a bit of it laying in the bottom of my casserole dish. Other than that...perfect!!! Read More

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. Read More

I had never made or eaten a sweet potato dish before but nobody would have ever known that. This was the hit of our Thanksgiving dinner this year of about 25 family members and friends. They all talked about the others they have eaten that weren't nearly as good. It felt great! I did only add the juice of 1 of the cans of sweet potatoes. Perfect!! Read More
