"This was a contest prize winner from Taste of Home. It's great to make if you're busy making other stuff, but you still want those sweet potatoes, also. You don't have to worry about messing it up and it travels well. It doesn't make a whole bunch as is, but you could make it into a bigger batch if you needed to."

I made these for Thanksgiving, for a bunch that don't like the ooey gooey marshmallowey kind of sweet potatoes - and they were a hit! I used fresh sweet potatoes cooked till almost tender, then followed the directions. I did dot a bit of butter on top, and these came out super delicious. Not too sweet and loved the tang of the cranberries. Will definitely make again.

Easy peasy tasty side. Because I had some leftover Japanese sweet potatoes, used a combination of the Japanese and a 15 oz. can of sweet potatoes. The cranberries and pecan topping along with the marmalade over the top just rounded it all out to a perfectly delightful dish! This is a perfect side for the Holiday's that would go perfectly with turkey and when I make it again I think I may add a some pats of butter, cause after all calories don't count during the Holidays! But without it is perfectly tasty and recommended. Thank you, WhatamIgonnaeatnext, for sharing. Made it for Billboard Tag.
