Orange Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

Orange Sweet Potato Casserole Recipe

The dish I always seem to make on Thanksgiving and Christmas is Sweet Potato Casserole but with a touch of orange! I just love the tang it adds and it even cuts the sweetness in a way. It’s a super simple recipe that you can get together in less than 30-40 minutes. I was able to make it Thanksgiving morning while getting ready to head out the door to my mother-in-laws house (while getting Lennox ready too!)

Ingredients:

  • 6-7 Sweet Potatoes
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • cinnamon
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows

Directions:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. While you are waiting for the water to boil, peel and cut up the sweet potatoes into small pieces. The larger the pieces, the longer it will take to cook – so keep this in mind. I tend to slice them and then cut each slide into 2 or 4.

  3. Once the water is boiling, add the sweet potatoes and boil for 15-18 minutes or until tender.
  4. Drain water and return to pan. Add in 3/4 stick of unsalted butter (cut into pieces to melt faster).
  5. Mash sweet potatoes slightly so that the butter melts.

  6. Add in 1/2 – 2/3 cup of brown sugar (depending how sweet you want the casserole to be), a few pinches of cinnamon (again, to taste) and 5 tablespoons of orange juice (I sometimes add more when I’m done if its not orange-y enough!).
  7. Mash all together until well mixed.
  8. Spoon into an oven safe casserole dish and top with mini marshmallows.

  9. If serving right away, place under broiler for 2-3 minutes (watching them the whole time) to melt and brown the marshmallows. If preparing ahead of time – bake in oven at 350 for 15-20 minutes until warmed and marshmallows are melted.
