"This makes a great holiday side dish. For the first bake do not bake the sweet potatoes until very soft just until almost fork tender as they will cook more in the casserole dish, they may be baked up to 2 days ahead of time before using for this dish. Prep time does not include the first bake."

We loved this recipe! I cut way back on the sugar but otherwise followed the recipe. The combination orange juice, ginger, cinnamon and apple make this a flavour loaded sweet potato recipe. Perfect side dish for your holiday feast.
