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 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."
