- 6 medium sweet potatoes*
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/3 cup orange juice (fresh squeezed, if possible)
Beat eggs and stir into potatoes. Add syrup, vanilla and orange juice and mash until smooth. Pour into greased casserole dish.
Topping: (if you family doesn't insist on marshmallows)
Cut 2 tablespoons butter into 2 tablespoons flour until crumbly; mix with 1/3 cup brown sugar. Sprinkle over top. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
*"Medium" must have meant something much smaller than today's typical sweet potato when this recipe was written. Usually I need no more than 3-4 of today's size potatoes, and that's with saving a cup for muffins.
