Delicious sweet potatoes that are not especially sweet, and the streusel topping with dried cranberry mixture has a tart and sweet flavor.

I was so excited to find a 6.5 pound bag of "USDA Organic" Sweet Potatoes at Sam's Club to use for this recipe - Great taste! A perfect side dish for the holidays or any time of the year.

How to Make CRANBERRY STREUSEL SWEET POTATOES

Step-by-Step

  1. Place sweet potatoes in 3-quart saucepan; add enough water just to cover potatoes. Cover pan and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer covered 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork; drain. Return potatoes to saucepan. Shake pan with potatoes over low heat to dry (this will help mashed potatoes be fluffier).
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mash potatoes in warm saucepan and mix well with 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 T. brown sugar, 1 t. cinnamon and 1/2 t. salt. Mix with potato masher or electric mixer on low speed until no lumps remain. Spoon into ungreased 1-quart casserole. Mix remaining ingredients; sprinkle over potatoes.
  3. Bake uncovered about 30 minutes or until potatoes are hot and topping mixture is golden brown.
  4. NOTE: You can make these potatoes a day ahead. Just follow the directions through Step 2, then cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Bake uncovered 45 to 60 minutes or until potatoes are hot and topping mixture is golden brown.
