Great recipe and very easy to make. I used dark brown sugar and craisins, wrapped in foil and put in a 9" square pan. Cooked for 1 hour at 400. Reheated the next day very well. Thinking o...

Excellent. I made this in a 9x13 glass pan. I also had to let it cook about 45 minutes total to cook the sweet potatoes, as other comments suggested. I used Craisins for the cranberries. I w...

It's easier to wrap individual portions: one potato, half an apple, and serve the packets that way. Mine took closer to 45 minutes to cook. Good flavor!

Great recipe! I did omit the brown sugar and cut back on the cranberries (less than 1/4c) to reduce the sugar and added some chopped pecans. Delicious! I will be making this again.

Loved this one! Never thought to grill sweet potatoes but they caramelized into a great dish we will have on the grill again! Had a nice sweetness to it that was great!

Delicious....made the recipe without any changes and it was almost more like a dessert then a side dish :)

I made it for the first time at Thanksgiving using cranberries mixed with orange zest and my family loved it! I have made it a few times since and it is always a hit, especially with my son.

Sorry but this didn't work for me. In the oven for over an hour and the s potato was still hard the apples didn't cook through.. Was a loser for me...

Easy after the peeling. I couldn't figure out how to core the apples and make rings, so I sliced them.
