Sweet Potato and Cranberry Bake Recipe

Instead of serving sweet potatoes alone at Christmas, I like to pair them with cranberries. Each bite offers a delicious contrast of sweet and tart flavors. —Linda Boot, Fort St. John, British Columbia
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 1 hour Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12-14 servings


  • 3-1/2 pounds sweet potatoes

  • 2 cups halved fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt, ground ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg


  • 1. Place sweet potatoes and onions on a baking sheet; brush onions with oil. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 50-60 minutes or just until tender. When cool enough to handle, peel and cube potatoes and dice onions; place in a large bowl.
  • 2. Combine the remaining ingredients; mix well. Gently stir into potato mixture. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through, stirring once. Yield: 12-14 servings.
