Great Gratin!

October 13, 2015

The flavors in this tailgate side dish are a homerun! Wow. Just wow.  Make it the day before the game. Heat it before you go, then keep in an insulated container to serve. Enjoy… Go Royals!

  • 4 cups heavy cream
  • 1 canned chipotle in adobo pepper
  • 6 medium sweet potatoes, peeled, sliced thin
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a blender, purée the cream and chipotle until smooth.

In a 10×10-inch casserole, arrange a fourth of the sweet potatoes, season to taste with salt and pepper, and pour a fourth of the cream over all. Repeat with the remaining potatoes and cream, forming 4 layers. (May be prepared up to this point 30 minutes ahead; covered and refrigerated.)

Bake for 1 hour, or until the cream has been absorbed and the potatoes are browned. (May be prepared up to 1 day ahead; covered and refrigerated.)

To serve, reheat in a 350-degree oven for 12 minutes.

Makes 8 to 10 servings.
