Scalloped Sweet Potato Stacks



Easter is right around the corner.  Here is a great way to add something new to your table.  These Sweet Potato Stacks would be a delicious addition to your dinner table or buffet – layers of melted mozzarella with cream and a hint of fresh thyme.  They will go perfect with your Easer Ham, or anytime with marinated chicken from the grill.   Just bake them in a muffin tin – they really are quite simple to make, but you can just imagine how impressed your company will be!

Scalloped Sweet Potato Stacks

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds small sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme, divided
1 cup (4 oz.) freshly shredded mozzarella cheese, divided*
2/3 cup heavy cream
1 garlic clove, pressed
1/2 to 3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Garnish: fresh thyme (optional)

Instructions:

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. Layer half of sweet potatoes in a lightly greased 12-cup muffin pan. Sprinkle with 1 1/2 tsp. thyme and 1/2 cup cheese. Top with remaining sweet potatoes. (Potatoes will come slightly above the rim of each cup.)
  • 2. Microwave cream, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 1/2 tsp. thyme at HIGH 1 minute. Pour cream mixture into muffin cups (about 1 Tbsp. per cup).
  • 3. Bake at 375°, covered with aluminum foil, 30 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted and slightly golden.
  • 4. Let stand 5 minutes. Run a sharp knife around rim of each cup, and lift potato stacks from cups using a spoon or thin spatula. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish, if desired.

*Gruyère cheese may be substituted.
