- Preheat oven to 375 F.
- Scrub sweet potatoes and pat dry with a dish towel. Place each potato on a foil square. Drizzle with a small amount of vegetable oil. Prick each sweet potato several times with a fork. Wrap loosely in foil. Place on a baking sheet and put in oven. Bake for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Cook time varies depending on size of potato (Sweet potatoes are done when a sharp knife or fork inserted in the center glides all the through).
- Remove potatoes from oven, unwrap the foil, do not remove potatoes from foil. With a sharp knife, slit potatoes down the center, lengthwise. Squeeze the sides of the sweet potatoes to expose some of the potato. Top each potato with 1 pat of butter, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of bacon on each potato, sprinkle 2 tablespoons dried cranberries on each potato. Drizzle 2 tablespoons honey over each potato. Fold foil over potatoes.
- Bake for 5 to 10 minutes longer.
