Number of Servings:
- 2 1/2 pounds - sweet potatoes peeled, sliced 1/4-inch thick
- 1 - orange very thinly sliced, seeds removed
- 1/2 cups - butter
- 1/2 cups - sugar
- 2 tablespoons - orange juice
- 1 teaspoons - vanilla
- 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.
