With a couple changes, these were delicious and very well received around the table. My teenage son prepared these for dinner last night. We reduced the orange juice to 1/3 cup, and that was plenty. We reduced the nutmeg to 1/4 teaspoon. My son inadvertently mixed the pecans into the mashed potatoes before baking, but that gave them more texture and flavor throughout. These perfectly offset a crunchy garlic chicken entree. A very good twist on sweet potatoes, indeed. We enjoyed these a lot!

The orange juice-nutmeg combination was overpowering.I guess it wasn't what I was expecting. Also I had to substitute walnuts for pecans, it would be better with the pecans.

Made this as a side dish for dinner and it was quite good. I did substitute milk for the oj and cinnamon for the nutmeg. Great make ahead. Thanks for posting.
