I tried this recipe when I couldn't find my standard marshmallow-topped recipe for sweet potatoes for Thanksgiving. I actually like this version better than my own! It is very easy to throw together and the orange juice really compliments the flavor well! An added bonus that is a family tradition in my house - the little ones are given the responsiblity of putting the miniature marshmallows in PERFECT rows on top of the mashed sweet potatoes. It gives them something to do makes them feel as if they helped prepare the Thanksgiving meal also (what smiles when you tell them what a great job they did!) and it keeps them out of your hair for at least 15-20 minutes while they are busy at the table! My six year old son loved doing it! I am 45 years old and this has been my job at Thanksgiving since I was about his age. Some family traditions never change- just the recipe gets better! Read More

I thought 1 cup of orange juice was too much. Next time I'll only add half a cup. And maybe a tablespoon or 2 of brown sugar. The orange flavor overpowered the potatoes too much. Read More

I used raw honey and brown sugar substitute instead of sugar. My husband said they were the best mashed sweet potatoes he's ever had and he had some a week ago that he loved at the Grand Lux Cafe (that's why I wanted to make some). This was my first time ever making home made mashed potatoes of any kind. I loved them. Easy and delicious. My husband thought they were better than candied yams too. Read More

My husband wanted to know what the special occasion was! I used honey and brown sugar in place the white sugar. I did not have any marshmallows though. Still it was great! I can't wait to serve this at the holidays to family! Read More

Tastes as it should. Orange juice is a nice touch and I found the 1 cup to be about the right amount. Read More

This was fantastic! I've never eaten sweet potatoes until I met my fiance and I'm trying to make the things that he likes - and boy did he like these! Said they were better than his mom's! I substituted the honey and brown sugar for the white sugar. I would use less OJ next time. And be careful where your oven rack is placed...marshmallows go up in flame! Read More

I made this for Thanksgiving. There's too much OJ and not enough sugar. No one ate seconds and most didn't finish their first serving. Read More

I didn't care for the taste of the orange juice with the sweet potato. It was a little too mush and took away from the yams. Read More

i love the opportunity to maximize my veggie co-op! i baked my sweet potatoes at 400 for 50 minutes so the skins came off easily, then mashed with brown sugar and fresh-squeezed OJ. cut the butter in half. and in a rare moment of good behavior, skipped the marshmallows. flavors complement well, would've been AMAZING with the marshmallows!
