SWEET POTATO GRATIN — Two kinds of potatoes, cream and two cheeses come together in this delicious potato side dish.
I’m a huge fan of sweet potatoes, but the rest of my family doesn’t generally care for them (crazy!). Enter this Sweet Potato Gratin. My family devoured it and I didn’t hear one complaint about the sweet potatoes.
Except for my youngest, no one in my family even likes sweet potato fries. Seriously. But sometimes, I just go right ahead and buy them, thinking there must be a way to serve them up that everyone will love.
Well let me tell you, this was it! In fact, they commented through the entire meal about how good it was. I think the combination of sweet and Russett potatoes in this dish helped win them over.
The cream and cheese bake up into a delicious, bubbly sauce that’s lick your plate good!
I’m sure you could use a different cheese in place of the Gruyere, but I must say, it was an absolutely perfect choice for this dish. I’ve already added this dish to my Thanksgiving menu.
