PERKS Recipe Winner: Sweet Potatoes with Orange Sauce

This is a fun, tangy spin on a holiday classic.  It uses less fat and sugar than most recipes we see for sweet potatoes but the orange should give it a nice little kick.  Susan from Rochester NY says the sauce can be made ahead of time and frozen.  We also think if you’re feeding a big table, you might want to double the recipe or more.


  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes or yams
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine


  1. In saucepan, combine sugar, salt and cornstarch. Slowly add in orange juice. Add butter. Cook until mixture thickens. ( will continue to thicken after heat s turned off.
  2. Pare and cut sweet potatoes in desired size. Arrange in casserole, Pour orange sauce over potatoes and bake at 400 degrees for about half hour or until tender.


Susan has been given $50 in PERKS Bucks to use at Get My PERKS as a reward for this yummy treat.  If you want to submit your favorite holiday recipe, email us at and include your name, your Get My PERKS market and why the recipe is important to your family.  We select several winners a day, so come back and check often!
