Creamy Sweet Potatoes Recipe

I took my mother's delicious sweet potato casserole recipe and gave it a new twist by adding the tempting taste of orange-a fruit very abundant in our state. The flavors are wonderful together and make this dish a family favorite. —Norma Poole, Auburndale, Florida

"This sounds so good. But I have a family that don't eat sweet potato except for me and one other. 10 to 12 servings is way to much. I wouldn't know how to cut it down for 2 of us.I'm giving it one star because they require a star. It is not fair of me to judge something I have not tried."

"This recipe is one that my six now-grown children request every holiday! When a very dear friend of ours was dying of cancer 12 years ago, this delicious dish was the one thing he'd still eat & it was easy on his stomach. Been making it since it was published in 1993. The only change I make is to eliminate the marshmallows--it's perfect without them!"

"My Mother used to make this recipe. Since we live in Florida and have citrus trees, she would juice the oranges and save the rest of the orange and put the sweet potato mixture in the orange shells and bake them that way...Since fresh squeezed leaves orange in the peeling you would get pieces of orange with most bites. She also added pecans pieces to the mixture with half pecan pieces on top of the marshmallows."
