You'll probably make this only once a year, but I think you'll find it a holiday keeper because orange and Madeira go so well with the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes. Another nice thing about this recipe is that whether you are taking this to a friend's home or making it for your own Thanksgiving dinner, you can make it a day or two in advance.
Cooks while you sleep! Sounds perfect for a Sunday morning or holidays and great for company! Some fun variations of this recipe. Before cooking (during prep) you can add: chunks of sourdough bread, diced chilies, salsa, diced green onions. Serve hot with a glass of orange juice and a side of toast.
