This is so good. Not too sweet. I chose to leave the marshmellows out. I have made it several times now and everyone loves it.

Yummy! Didn't have the bourbon or the pumpkin pie spice, so added allspice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Browned the marshmallows as recommended. It came out great.

Loved it and so did my family. It's now my favorite recipe for sweet potatoes!

This was very good but the orange flavor was overpowering. Might be good for someone who doesn't like the flavor of sweet potatoes. Next time I make it (and I'll definitely make it again) I'll h...

Easy, and delicious. I didn't have an orange, so I substituted with std orange juice, and it turned well. This will be a fall staple at our dinner table.

Great dish! I loved the addition of the orange flavor and zest in sweet potatoes! No bourbon and don't need marshmallows - it's sweet enough. Maybe candied pecans on top would give it a nice...

This was a hit both times I prepared it! Once I brought it to a picnic on the trail party and it was great heated in a fireplace! Second time it was just as good for a Thanksgiving side dish.....
