Sweet Potato Casserole

Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 1 hr, 10 mins
Stand time 15 mins
Yield 10 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
We prefer the more intense flavor that develops as the sweet potatoes bake in the oven. To save time, peel the potatoes and cut into cubes. Cook in the microwave in a small amount of water until the potatoes can be mashed easily with a fork. Preheat the oven to 400°, and continue with the recipe beginning with step 3.

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped dried apricots
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon yogurt-based spread (such as Brummel and Brown)
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Wrap sweet potatoes in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 1 hour.

  3. Bring apple cider to a boil in a small saucepan. Add apricots and cranberries; remove from heat. Cover and let stand 15 minutes.

  4. Scoop pulp from potatoes; place pulp in a large mixing bowl. Add yogurt-based spread. Beat with a mixer at medium speed until smooth.
