    • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    • 3 tablespoons orange juice, or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Directions
    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour5min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Place the sweet potatoes into a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Gently boil over medium-low heat until tender, 15 to 25 minutes. Drain the sweet potatoes, peel and mash in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat the sweet potatoes until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Beat in 1/3 cup of margarine, 1/2 cup brown sugar, orange juice, salt, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and egg. Spread the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
    3. Beat in 1/3 cup of margarine, 1/2 cup brown sugar, orange juice, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and egg. Spread the mixture into a rectangular baking dish.
    4. In a bowl, mix the crushed matzo, 1/2 cup margarine, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 pinch cinnamon. Spread the topping evenly over the sweet potato mixture.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until the topping is golden and bubbling, about 30 minutes. If the topping needs more browning, switch the oven to broil and brown under the broiler until darker, about 3 minutes.

    Everyone liked this! I didn't do the topping exactly as written only because I didn't want to add another 1/2 cup of margarine to the dish. But I got many compliments.  -  21 Apr 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
