DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Peel and slice potatoes about 1 inch thick. Arrange in lightly greased 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
  • In small saucepan, stir together sugar, cornstarch, salt and orange peel.
  • Slowly stir orange juice into the sugar mixture.
  • Add butter. Cook stirring constantly until mixture boils and thickens. Boil and stir about 1 minute.
  • Pour hot orange sauce over sweet potatoes. Cover and bake 1 hour, basting occasionally.
  • Note: During Christmas I often bake the potatoes and prepare the sauce ahead of time. I then reheat the sauce, assemble and bake for about 30 minutes at 350F until heated through. Can be topped with marshmallows if desired.
