Sweet Potato Cranberry Casserole

One more day until Thanksgiving...and the potato seems to get lost in the shuffle sometimes, so let's celebrate that delightful vegetable with a sparkling addition of you guessed it the cranberry!


Sweet Potato Cranberry Casserole

By:  Lelandra - www.food.com 


Ingredients:
4 large sweet potatoes
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter (optional)
1 cup orange juice
2 cups cranberries
1/4 cup chopped toasted nuts
1/2 cup oats
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Boil yams until tender and then cut into quarter-inch slices.  Layer yams, then 1/2 of other ingredients, then 1/2 yams slices, then remaining cranberries and sugar.  Pour orange juice on last.  

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Then uncover and add topping (nuts, oats, brown sugar, melted butter and cinnamon) and bake 10 minutes more.  

Add grated orange rind for tangy taste; can cut down on sugar and substitute dried cranberries for fresh.

Yield:  8 servings
