I made these for our dinner last night and we both liked them very much. They were easy to put together and didn't take long to bake. These are a keeper for me and my sweetheart.

How to Make My Applesauce Sweet Potato Bake

Step-by-Step

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375.
  2. Place sweet potatoes in a 3 quart saucepan; add enough water to cover.
  3. Heat to boiling; reduce heat and cover and simmer for 30 to 35 minutes. (or microwave potatoes wrapped in paper towels for 30 minutes or until tender)
  4. Drain sweet potatoes and remove skins, cut each sweet potato linghwise in half.
  5. Place sweet potatoes, cut side up in a ungreased 2 quart casserole or square baking dish, 8 X 8 X 2 inches.
  6. Spread applesauce over sweet potatoes.
  7. Mix brown sugar, nuts, cranberries and cinnamon and sprinkle over applesauce.
  8. Dot with butter and cover and bake about 30 minutes or until hot.
  9. For a shortcut: use one can (18 ounce) vacuum-packed sweet potatoes, cut lengthwise in half instead of fresh sweet potatoes.
  10. Why not try different sprinkles:

    *Miniature marshmallows
    *Canned sliced peaches or pineapple
    *Toasted pecans or almonds
    *French-fried onion rings or crushed croutons
