This has been a favorite side dish at our holiday table for several years. These are the only sweet potatoes that my kids will eat. They are wonderfully festive and are a great accompaniment to turkey or ham.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This crisp is not your ordinary sweet potato casserole. The sweet potato center is creamy. We loved the layer of tangy cranberries and crisp apples. Once baked, the oat crumble adds a crunchy texture. There are many layers of delicious flavor in this easy sweet potato crisp. So good, it's almost a dessert!
