Cranberry Sweet Potato Bake Recipe

Publisher Photo
This colorful casserole is the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving, with its combination of sweet potatoes, cranberries and apples. I find it convenient to cook the sweet potatoes in the morning and assemble the dish, then bake it later.

I cut the sugar down as the apples sweeten things up

I made this for the first time and everyone raved about how good it was. They really enjoyed the apple/sweet potato combination. I did use dried cherries instead of cranberries as I didn't have those and it turned out great.

It's okay, although the yams should be mixed with cinnamon and/or butter to give it flavor, rather than on top.
