Historiann's Thanksgiving Recipe Exchange

Per Historiann's suggestion, here is a recipe that will be featured (and has often been) on my Thanksgiving table. It's a savory (as opposed to sickeningly sweet) sweet potato recipe, it's really easy, and you can make it the day before, and just heat it up in the oven right before you're about to serve dinner on Thanksgiving Day.

From Wild Women in the Kitchen: 101 Rambunctious Recipes and Tasty Tales.

Sweet Potato Gratin

3 sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
1 tbsp finely minced fresh sage
1 cup cream
1/2 cup grated Jarlsberg cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a buttered casserole dish, overlap the potato slices in a single layer. Sprinkle with half of the sage and pour half of the cream over. add another layer of potatoes and top with the rest of the sage and cream. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked and the top is bubbly. Serves six.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Just for fun: I replaced my fish, and one is bright orange. I have named it Crazy in your honor.

I love the simplicity of it! Are you sure it works, every time? Any special advice or issues to watch out for?
