Herbed Sweet Potato Gratin
Sliced sweet and russet potatoes baked in a creamy and aromatic sauce. A special side dish for any occasion.Yield:
1 pound russet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
1 1/3 cups heavy cream
3 tablespoons butter
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 375°F. In a 3 qt. oven-safe pan, heat cream, butter and garlic over medium heat and bring to a low simmer. Remove pan from heat. Stir in salt, pepper, and herbs followed by the grated cheese.
- Add potatoes to the pan, arranging the slices so that most of them can be submerged in the cream mixture.
- Cover pan with a lid or foil and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove cover and continue to bake until the top is golden and edges are crispy-- about 20 more minutes. Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
