I just made the most sublime sweet potato dish I have ever eaten. I'd been looking for something to do with sweet potatoes for Canadian Thanksgiving dinner, but refuse absolutely to put marshmallows or brown sugar on them. So I found this recipe online which sounded pretty good. It was unreal. Apparently adapted from something by Bobby Flay. There's not a scrap left in the baking dish.
Peel and slice 8 sweet potatoes thinly.
In a blender, blend together 3 cups of whipping cream and one canned chipotle pepper. (The original recipe called for 4 cups of cream, but I found it a bit too liquidy at the end of the baking time so would recommend reducing the amount.)
Now, in a greased baking dish (I used one about 9 x 13 or so) make a layer of sweet potatoes, sprinkle with salt and pepper, then pour over some of the cream mixture. Repeat until you have done 4 layers of potato and used up all the cream. Cover tightly with foil and bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking for another 30 minutes, brushing surface with some of the cream if it's bubbling up from the bottom.
This is deadly. Creamy, sweet and spicy all at the same time.
Just had to share.
