Orange You Glad You Made This

Here's a nice side dish for you.
It's orange on orange - sweet potato in orange cups.
And it tastes ... orange!

 Orange You Glad You Made This
1 large sweet potato
3 oranges
1 egg, beaten
a few tablespoons cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
brown sugar
unsalted butter
mini marshmallows

This is a non-recipe.
I've given you the ingredients.
It's up to you to put it together.

Peel and chop the sweet potato.
Bring to a boil in salted water and cook until tender.

Transfer sweet potato to a medium bowl
and add in a tablespoon of unsalted butter.
Mash until butter is melted.
Stir in vanilla and egg,
beating with electric mixer.
 Beat in a tablespoon of cream at a time,
until creamy smooth.
Season to taste with kosher salt.

Halve oranges and scoop out the segments with a serrated spoon.
 I hold the orange over the sweet potato mixture
to collect any juices that drip out.
 Eat the segments.

Scoop the sweet potato mixture into the orange cups.

In a small bowl, mix together:
 about 2 TB softened unsalted butter,
about 2 TB brown sugar,
and some coarsely chopped pecans.
Spoon mixture over filled orange cups
and top with mini marshmallows.

Bake at 325° about 20 minutes 
until heated through 
and marshmallows are melted and browned.
