Sweet potatoes Butter Brown sugar Frozen orange juice Orange zest Cinnamon Cumin Salt Vanilla extract Pecans Flour Oatmeal flakes


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Wash and peel the sweet potatoes then cut them into 1/2-inch cubes. Toss the sweet potatoes into a 9x13 inch baking dish. 

Step One

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar, concentrated orange juice, orange zest, cinnamon, cumin, and salt. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.

Step Two

Pour the orange juice mixture over the sweet potatoes and toss to coat all the potato cubes. 

Step Three

To make the strussel topping, melt the butter in a saucepan or in the microwave. Stir in the pecans, brown sugar, flour, oatmeal, and cinnamon. 

Step Four

Spread the streusel topping over the sweet potatoes. Sprinkle with extra pecan halves. 

Step Five

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Cover with foil halfway through the baking time to prevent the streusel from browning too much.
