OK for Low-Fat/Low-Calorie This recipe was ok. I made it and took it to our family Thanksgiving dinner. For those who had it, they said it was good but I thought it could be a little sweeter. Good choice for the diet concious. I did have a second helping (left-over dinner) but probably won't make again. Pros: Healthy Cons: Not as sweet as traditional Sweet Potato Casserole

add some pumpkin! I live in Japan, where sweet potatos are purple on the outside, yellow inside. To get that tantilizing orange color that SPC must have, I cooked some Japanese pumpkin squash along with the sweet potatoes, and mashed it all together (minus green pumpkin skin). My guests (Malaysian people) all loved it and took seconds. I've been sneaking spoonfuls ever since lunch. The orange is a refreshing addition. I'll be finishing the dish at breakfast tomorrow. Pros: much lighter w/o butter Cons: the top didn't look at all like the picture

A little different than the picture. I made this following all directions assuming it'd look like the picture, but it doesn't at all. I have sampled the recipe so it seems to taste pretty good. The topping doesn't look ANYTHING like the picture which to me looks like a streusel topping. This came out following the directions exactly more doughy looking. I'm a little worried since I have to take this to my husbands work potluck instead of a family gathering. Pros: Good flavor, Sw. pot. casserole with a new twist Cons: Picture is misleading, topping isn't a streusel looking variety

Take this sweet potato casserole over the top Bake the sweet potato, develop the natural sugar. The difference is amazing.

Yummy! I really enjoyed this recipe! I made it for a potluck Christmas dinner this past weekend and everyone raved about it! The orange zest definitely adds a different punch, and it deviates from the taste of a traditional SPC, but it's still delicious! I added marshmallows the five minutes of baking. Super gooey and good! I will definitely be making this again. Only 1 tbsp of butter!!!!! Pros: Much healthier, less butter, delicious topping Cons: A little more time consuming than traditional SPC

I made this yesterday for Thanksgiving and we all loved it. Easy to make and the orange flavor gave it that extra kick. It was difficult for me to not have those crusted marshmallows that I've always had on my sweet potatos but I figure I'll take some leftovers, invert and top with marshmallows and stick under the broiler.

Our old favorite holiday sweet potato dish was a butter-laden citrussy one from Paul Prudhomme. I've tried healthier ones in recent years, but never was satisfied. I tried this one because of the citrus flavor, and my family and I loved it. It's going into my cookbook for next year.

This was a big hit a couple Thanksgivings ago, and I'm going to make it again.
