Brighten up candied sweet potatoes with a hint of citrus. This orange sweet potato recipe is one side dish so delicious that it might just steal the show from the entree.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Layer potatoes in a 2-quart baking dish. Top with the orange slices. In a small saucepan melt butter and sugar together over medium-low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in orange juice and vanilla. Pour over potatoes and orange slices. Cover and bake 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes more or until potatoes are tender and browned, spooning juices over potatoes halfway through the uncovered baking time. Grate nutmeg over the top and serve warm.

Just Wondering? Are the orange peels edible after they have been cooked?

Gonna make this for a family dinner this Sat. Stay tuned. Looks divine, this is the only starch I'm serving, save perhaps some Mancini bread, which is classic Pittsburgh, for relatives from the Carolinas. Can't wait!
