My 13 year old daughter selected and made this recipe for our Thanksgiving dinner. Sweet potatoes are not a part of our tradition, so this was a new experience for us. Emily and I thought they were great, my 16 year old son rated them very good, and my husband (not a sweet potato fan at all) at least gave them a try. I loved the addition of the vanilla and nutmeg in this recipe, and the potatoes smelled heavenly while baking. Emily topped them with a few mini marshmallows since that is what she had heard sweet potatoes should alway have. The marshmallows pretty much melted and disappeared into the potatoes. I especially loved the potatoes when they mixed together with cranberry sauce on my dinner plate. Yumm, nice combination of sweet and tart!
We made these for Thanksgiving. Our family really enjoyed them. had no left overs. Will make again.
This recipe was very good and easy to make. I didn't use the orange zest that the recipe called for and I used canned sweet potatoes instead of fresh ones to save on time(I used 4 small cans). Lots of compliments on this one!
very yummy!!! i added marshmallows to the top of mine during the last few minutes of cooking.
these were very good....and easy too
Absolutely delicious... it's like dessert with dinner! Thanks!
I made this twice. Once with nutmeg and once without. Its strange how so little nutmeg can make such a difference. The whole family liked it much better without. Great recipe. I had never had sweet potatoes before I tried this and now I love them. Thanks for posting!
Highly Reccomended! My Father-in-law is a picky eater & he asks me to make these for every holiday! I don't use the orange zest either (only because I didn't have any). I usually bake this at 350, but if you have other things in the oven, they can easily be baked at any temp, just look for a knife to slide easily into a large potato chunk. Can easily be doubled! Thank you for posting such a wonderful recipe!
What else can I say but "AWESOME"?! These were loved by all of my Thanksgiving guests!!
candied sweet potatoes are my favorite on holidays, for the last 40years I have been experimenting and this is the best recipe I have come across. thanks for sharing:)
