Great recipe, I was in heaven!!! Only thing I did differently, I added a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg and a teaspoon of vanilla extract. It was tender and buttery and sweet. Thank you for the recipe

This one is great. For years, the only way I would eat sweet potatoes was my Mama's SP casserole, but this has changed my mind. The potatoes were sweet and had a good texture. My 4 year old even liked them. That's saying a lot. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Will definitely be eating more sweet potatoes in our house!

Try using orange juice instead of water.
