A new twist on the old standard of sweet potato pie but no crust. This has just a hint of orange flavor and is not overly sweet. You will love it! Great side dish for your Thanksgiving feast! If desired, top casserole with marshmallows and brown in oven.

This is my recipe. I found using more potatos cuts back on the sweetness just enough.You can also make this ahead of time and just reheat. Read More

When I tasted this before cooking I found the flavor to be rather thin and unremarkable. So I added: molasses lots of cinnamon nutmeg ginger and a smidge of rum. With these additions it was excellent. Read More

I love this dish but for health reasons I did a few things different. I boiled the potatoes first then skinned them (the skins come off easier that way). I substitued Splenda for the white sugar and added 1/3 cup brown sugar. I also mixed in walnuts and used egg subsitute instead of the real things. For butter I used a Heart Smart brand of butter that really did taste like butter but was made largely with olive oil. The only thing I did allow for us was the miniature marshmellows but not too many. We ate this stuff like it was going out of style and we didn't feel bad afterward.:) Read More

Excellent dish! I made this for dessert and after just one spoonful my wife insisted "you gotta make this for my mother!" One change: I used 3 tbs butter instead of 1/2 cup. Read More

I liked it but it was far too sweet and became very clumpy. Don't know what I did wrong. Read More
