Orange sweet potatoes with oatmeal topping
adapted from november 1994 gourmet magazine (and yes, I did make it ff!)
5 lbs of sweet potatoes (about 7 large)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of oj
1/4 cup of sweet orange marmalade
1 T. grated peeled ginger
1/4 c prepared butter buds (optional -- I just used water because some
people in philly fatfree are vegan; 1/4 C is half a packet.)
1 box Obies oatmeal cookie mix
Bake the sweet potatoes until very soft. Allow to cool.
In a bowl, mash together the first 6 ingredients (peel the potatoes first!).
Pour into a 13x9x2 pan (I used an extra large pie pan).
In a separate bowl, mix up the obies mix, so that it is not overly wet (the
directions say to add 1/4 cup of water, and then add water by the
tablespoon. I think I probably added 2 or 3 tablespoons.) Cover and chill
for 2 hours.
Crumble oatmeal topping over potato mixture, until it's evenly distributed.
Bake at 350F until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. (Make sure the oatmeal
has cooked through!) If the oatmeal starts to turn white, take it out --
it's drying out.
Good alternative to marshmallow topped sweet potatoes. Has the Jackie Manni
seal of approval. =-)
P.S. for people who haven't been exposed to Obie's, it's a cookie mix with
dried fruit purees instead of oils. If you have a favorite ff oatmeal cookie
recipe, use that in lieu of obies.
