    I was surprised how much I liked this recipe. I want to make it again next week! The sweet-tart cranberries and the punch of the onion soup mix and white pepper were perfect.

    Incredibly easy and very tasty. I doubled the recipe except for the dry onion soup mix -- I couldn't find the low sodium version and and wanted to cut back on the sodium. I roasted the sweet potato first and then used a meat thermometer to be sure of the cook time. It did cook in an hour and everything was moist and delicious. I suspect this would be especially good with turkey breast, too. Thanks for such an easy and flavorful recipe! (Addendum: I just discovered that this only gets better when it's time for leftovers. This dish is like a healthier and faster version of Thanksgiving dinner, given the ingredients. Next time I may make some stuffing to go along with it...)

    I hate sweet potatoes and made this recipe hoping that all the flavors in this would camouflage the taste of the potatoes and be tasty at the same time. It did just that and was differently delicious. Great recipe!

    I really made this just to experiment with something really different, but it was so good that my son was actually furious when he got home from a late night and all the leftovers had been eaten throughout the evening. I am not really a ginger fan, but in this recipe, the ginger really gives a nice "heat" feel to the whole thing without a big ginger flavor. Really different and definitely delicious.
