Sweet Potato Gratin

This Sweet Potato Gratin is a firm favorite at Thanksgiving in my house. It is so simple to prepare – I usually prepare it in advance and simply bake it in the oven just before I want to serve it. 

For this recipe, I start by making a sauce from cream, garlic, thyme, nutmeg, salt and pepper. As the sauce cooks, season potatoes with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Layer the potatoes into a prepared dish and pour the cream sauce over the potatoes. Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake until the potatoes are tender. Remove the foil and sprinkle with cheese. Return to the oven until the top is golden brown. Garnish the gratin with parsley if desired.
