Number of Servings:


  1. 2 1/2 pounds - sweet potatoes peeled, sliced 1/4-inch thick
  2. 1 - orange very thinly sliced, seeds removed
  3. 1/2 cups - butter
  4. 1/2 cups - sugar
  5. 2 tablespoons - orange juice
  6. 1 teaspoons - vanilla
  7. 1/4 teaspoons - freshly grated nutmeg


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Layer potatoes in a 2-quart baking dish. Top with 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 20-30 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.
