Mash potatoes with orange juice, cinnamon and nutmeg. Transfer to a large baking dish.

Peel, core, and cut pears into eighths.

Melt butter in a large skillet over fairly high heat. Add sugar, ginger, sage, and pear wedges. Soften the pears, flipping occasionally until both sides are golden brown.

Arrange the pears and a few sage leaves (optional) on top of the sweet potatoes in a baking dish. Bake on 375 degrees until thoroughly heated (about 20-30 minutes).

Serves 10-12.
