My MIL made this last Thansgiving, it is to die for!! exact same recipe, we have all begged her to make it again this year,she is one of those people that always says she can't find the recipe! but now I can make my own!! TRY this!
The flavor of the sweet potatoes was delicious. A little time consuming with the orange rinds and couldn't quite get what to do with the marshmallows, I think next time I'll sprinkle with brown sugar. Were a bit hit!
We love these! I make them a bit differently, though. I add condensed milk, vanilla, ginger, nutmeg, & cinnamon to the potatoes. After filling, I sprinkle the tops with chopped pecans, and bake for 20 minutes. Then I top with mini marshmallows & bake another 20 minutes. A little water in the bottom of the dish keeps them from drying out too much. Thanks!
I remember making these in the 50's. They are adorable and really taste good. I don't remember any marshmallows in this dish. I think we used a sort of streusel type topping for them. If you really wanted to be fancy you left a little handle on top with the rind.
I loved your recipe. My ony change was slice off thinly of the bottom of the orange to keep them from not tipping over.
This recipe is not only delicious but looks fabulous my suggestion is on top of the brown sugar toping sprinkle chopped pecans.
