  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper
  • Smoked Paprika
  • Casserole
  • 4 tablespoons Butter
  • 3 tablespoons Gluten Free Flour (or AP Flour)
  • 2 1/2 cups Fat Free Milk

Method

  • Pre heat oven to 400 degrees F with the rack in the middle. Prepare a baking sheet with tin foil or a Silpat liner. Toss sweet potato slices in olive oil, garlic salt, pepper & smoked paprika. Arrange sweet potatoes on the sheet pan in a single layer. Bake about 20 minutes until potatoes are soft & slightly browned. Remove from oven & let cool a bit.
  • Melt butter in a sauce pan, whisk in flour. Stir in milk & bring to a simmer. Set aside.
  • Spray a 3 quart baking dish with cooking spray. Layer potatoes & 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, repeat this for 2nd layer. Add 3rd layer of sweet potatoes, pour milk mixture over the top. Top with 3rd cup of cheddar cheese & mozzarella.
  • Cover casserole dish with tin foil. Bake for 60 minutes. Carefully remove the foil & broil for 5 -10 minutes. Cheese should be slightly browned & bubbling. Be sure it does not burn. Remove from oven & let sit a few minutes. Sauce will thicken as the casserole cools.
  • Top with avocado, green onions & bacon crumbles. Serve with salsa & sour cream.

Marla,
I’m ready for this casserole right now. I’m awfully glad I saved a couple of farm share sweet potatoes in the Strategic Winter Squash Reserve!
Thank you.

What a gorgeous way to do sweet potatoes. Now I’m torn between these and my candied sweets for Easter.

Looks wonderful. How far in advance could you make these?

Reply

26 Marla May 7, 2014 at 10:11 am

You can make this dish the day before you would like to serve it. You will just need to re-heat it before serving so the cheese gets all melty :)

i made this by adding a little heavy cream in place of some of the milk and a little cornstarch to thicken it more. I added some of the extra sharp cheddar to that sauce, which made a cheese gravy. The trick was to heavily season the sweet potatoes before baking. I used a Parmesan pesto shake on I had, along with garlic and onion powder and heavy smoked paprika, salt and pepper. I could have just eaten them alone, but this casserole (which is what I’m calling it because it really turned into that) was amazing. Everyone said it was like a Mexican sweet potato casserole. Don’t skip the sour cream and salsa. It really made it. I liked extra green onion on mine. I will absolutely make it again. My 7 year old couldn’t keep his hands off of it, and my husband loved it. 5 stars from me.

Sounds like fabulous adaptations!!!

I took Meredith’s tip and added a cup of heavy cream to the milk mixture. I also used half asian/Japenese sweet potato and half traditional orange sweet potato. It was delicious! Of course I also had to had fresh chopped jalapenos to the toppings because I like spicy stuff.
My husband thinks this dish is divine and my toddler gobbles it up too (without the jalapenos, of course!)
Best stumbled upon recipe I’ve found yet!
Thanks!
