Au Gratin Sweet Potatoes

November 27

Are you still busy looking for side dish recipes for dinner tomorrow?  Here is a delicious recipe for Au Gratin Sweet Potatoes.  No, they are not the marshmallow classic that will be served at many thanksgiving tables, but the sweet delicious sweet potato still shines through in this rich, creamy sauce seasoned with garlic, nutmeg and is accented by the nutty flavor of golden brown Parmesan cheese.  I know my family was skeptical the first time that I suggested the switch, but these potatoes moved very quickly into our list of Thanksgiving standards and now hold a very large spot in the hearts and stomachs of my friends and family!





Au Gratin Sweet Potatoes

3 large sweet potatoes or yams

3 cups heavy cream

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 tsp garlic powder

3/4 tsp kosher salt

1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In oven proof dish, whisk together cream, garlic powder, nutmeg, and salt.  Layer potatoes in cream using a shingle pattern.  Top with Parmesan cheese and bake, uncovered, for 45 minutes or until potatoes are soft and cooked through.  Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before serving.  Serves 6
