    Joyce18's Note:

    I was looking through (forgive me) another recipe site, and found this. I have been making it for the last four Thanksgivings. It has become a "traditional" Thanksgiving side dish (and for any other meal). I made it the first year and brought it to my daughter-in-law's house, now three years later, she is making it for Thanksgiving.It can be used with chicken and pot roast too) The peeling & cutting of the potatoes and squash is a little bit of a bother, but it's worth the work. You will love this dish! I usually double the ingredients so we will have leftovers.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375°F.
    2. 2
      Peel the squash and sweet potatoes.
    3. 3
      Cut both the sweet potatoes and the squash into 1 inch cubes. Place most of the oil in the pan (I use a 9-inch13"), and add the sweet potatoes and the squash and bake, covered with aluminum foil for about 20 minutes.
    4. 4
      After 20 minutes is up, remove dish from oven and remove foil.
    5. 5
      Add cranberries (I use more than 1/4 cup).
    6. 6
      Sprinkle the sugar and cinnamon on top and dribble with remaining oil (again, I use a little more of the sugar, cinnamon and oil).
    7. 7
      Bake uncovered at 375°F for 30-35 minutes, or until well browned.

      This was so good! I doubled the brown sugar just because I knew my kids wouldn't eat it if I didn't. I used a butternut squash and several of the tiniest yams I have ever seen. I didn't have any dried cranberries, but I did have some in a bag of trail mix that has been sitting around and no one has been eating, so I picked them out and rinsed them. Lol. I'm sure I'll be making this again. Thank you!
