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
