Sweet Potato Casserole

This scrumptious sweet potato casserole gets fabulous flavor from honey and freshly grated orange zest rather than the traditional stick of butter. To complete the healthy makeover we sprinkle a crunchy pecan streusel spiked with orange juice concentrate over the top. You can save the marshmallows for s'mores.

This is the second time I have made this recipe. Wow!!! I use organic everything in the yams and put a just a touch more orange juice in the topping this time. Office party or family dinner, this is one of the best nutritious and tasty recipes I have found on the internet.


I made this recipe on Thanksgiving and now it is requested for every family gathering. It is excellent!


This was one of the favorite side dishes at Thanksgiving this year.


I love sweet potatoes, and this--to date--has been my favorite recipe for making them. I like this even more than the traditional marshmallow covered sweet potatoes that are served during the holidays. The orange in this tastes amazing. I like it so much that I add extra orange juice concentrate to the sweet potatoes (it tastes so delicious). Every person I've made this for has loved it. Even people who claim to "hate" sweet potatoes have said they thought this was delicious. I highly recommend using this recipe for any meal/event that you are planning on serving sweet potatoes (trust me, you will not regret it).


Made this for thanksgiving and thought it was a great alternative to the typcially high fat version. The orange zest added a wonderful fresh flavor. Will definitely make this again!
