Gluten Free Sweet Potatoes Au Gratin

DSCN0070 I am not a sweet potato person. I do not like them baked, fried or candied. They are loved by most of my mothers side of the family but I never cared for them. One year I was watching the T.V. show The Chew. It was a fun little show. It may still even be on. I have no idea. I was half heartedly watching an episode while working on a sweater for my mother. Then I heard the words "Sweet Potatoes Au Gratin". It stuck with me. I never did see how they did it. I am sure it was not much different then this. The next time I thought of it was a few Thanksgivings back. I made some using sweet potatoes instead of white. The dish was a hit with everyone; including the children. Above all else it is really easy to make and better for you then anything out of a box.

GF Sweet Potatoes Au Gratin

  • 2-4 Sweet Potatoes pealed and sliced
  • 1-2 Sweet Onions pealed and sliced
  • 1 pound (about 4 cups) Shredded Cheese (we like sharp cheddar)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350
  2. grease a casserole dish with some soft butter
  3. lay down a layer of Sweet Potatoes
  4. next some Sweet Onions
  5. sprinkle on some Cheese
  6. repeat 3-5 times until everything is used and make sure to end with cheese
  7. Place in Oven for about 60 minutes.

You know it is done by poking it with a fork or a knife and the potatoes are soft.

You can add salt and black pepper after or when you are creating the layers. You could also add diced ham and have a complete dinner in one dish.

Live. Laugh and Enjoy! ~Fire-Eyes
