My boys love this and not just for Thanksgiving. I make this all fall and winter long. They would rather have this than anything else. We love the taste of orange with my sweet potatoes and because I do not like to zest fruits I added marmalade. I am always looking for a shortcut. One of my boys does not like nuts but they could be added to the topping instead of coconut. The quantity of spices and marmalade depends on the size of the potatoes so taste as making.

This sweet potato casserole has a wonderful combination of flavors. Lightly sweet and fruity, it's the perfect holiday side. The filling has a fluffy and creamy texture. We loved the addition of orange marmalade and sweetened condensed milk. The marmalade is not an overpowering flavor and just adds a hint of citrus. On top is a buttery, crunchy, and sweet topping.
