Our neighbors had a little early Thanksgiving Dinner because they have a new baby coming and wanted to still be able to have Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun to have a big dinner all together and see what everyone brought. I saved this post until now since it’s a little closer to Thanksgiving. This is a really yummy twist on sweet potatoes and I usually don’t even like sweet potatoes if that tells you anything. I got the recipe from my girlfriend, Lisa and made an adaption.
Definitely keep them in a pan instead of moving to a bowl because the hot sweet potatoes begin to mush together. Also, if you desperately need the marshmallows on top you can totally do it.
Orange Glazed Sweet Potatoes
Recipe by Lisa and adapted by me
1 Cup Orange Juice
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/3 Cup White Sugar
2 Tb Butter
2 Tb Corn Starch
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 Tb Orange Zest
Boil the yams until tender. Remove from water and carefully remove the skins and slice.
Slowly cook the ingredients together and then bake at 350 until hot and bubbly.
