Recipe by Norahs Girl
This is great cold--also with a good salad and chutney. I've also taken it on picnics and the children have taken it in lunch boxes. It's also good weekend fare for when you're busy and everyone's in and out.
Top Review by food snob mom
I added extra nutmeg to this recipe by suggestion of my food snob in Israel daughter. She also suggested that I omit the orange juice and use some orange rind over the top of the crust. I wish I had added more because I don't really taste it. I also used the left over wine that I drained from the apples and substituted some of the cream ( I used half and half) with the wine. Mix it quickly or it will curdle. I ony used less than 1/4 cup. I like the taste of this dish, but I think it is really better when it is warmed up.
- 1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1⁄4 cup melted butter
