Loved this one! Never thought to grill sweet potatoes but they caramelized into a great dish we will have on the grill again! Had a nice sweetness to it that was great!

Great recipe and very easy to make. I used dark brown sugar and craisins, wrapped in foil and put in a 9" square pan. Cooked for 1 hour at 400. Reheated the next day very well. Thinking of adding this to my Thanksgiving menu next year. Will definitely cook again.

Delicious....made the recipe without any changes and it was almost more like a dessert then a side dish :)

This was great! Next time I will put in the full amount of sugar called for and a little sea salt! Thanks for sharing.

The family requested I leave out the cranberries, so I did, but it was still very good. After reading some of the reviews I cut back just a smidgeon on the brown sugar which worked out very well for us. This was easy and delicious and I love no clean up.

We made this as side dish with chicken. It was delicious. We also added chopped walnuts to it. All the ingredients blended together so well - the apples, sweet potatoes and cranberries were just so tasty all together. It will be our new sweet potato dish for Thanksgiving! So very simple to make too!

Great recipe. I needed something to go with Smoked tenderloin and this was a perfect side dish. Easy to prepare with great flavor. I did use a little sea salt on the potatoes. I will definitely be making this again.

Excellent. I made this in a 9x13 glass pan. I also had to let it cook about 45 minutes total to cook the sweet potatoes, as other comments suggested. I used Craisins for the cranberries. I wrapped it up in a 'hot wrap' to take 1.5 hours to a family gathering, and it was great when we got there. It also tastes good cold the next day! Not much left, however!
