Sweet Potato Gratin with Fresh Sage

Sweet Potato Gratin with Fresh Sage is one of those dishes that need to be in your family's meal plan rotation! It is that good! Sweet potatoes are not only delicious but good for you too. This easy to assemble dish is one you will make again, and again! Sweet potatoes and fresh sage never tasted so good!

The flavors in this easy to assemble oven casserole are a perfect partner to just about any main course. If you enjoy sweet potatoes but get tired of a sweet, sweet potato dish, then Sweet Potatoes Gratin with Fresh Sage is what you are looking for! 

I waited until after the holidays to share this recipe. I did not want this delicious vegetable gratin to be thought of as just a holiday recipe. Sweet Potato Gratin with Fresh Sage can (and should!) be enjoyed throughout the year, and not just at holiday time. This gratin will go perfectly with any main dish entree, but especially so with pork or chicken! Plus it is pretty delicious all on its own as a meatless entree...

You will find the simple preparation of Sweet Potato Gratin with Fresh Sage fits right in with getting a healthy meal on the table with little fuss. Plus helping layer the ingredients into the baking pan is perfect for those little helpers that want to help, or you need to keep busy until mealtime! Once the sweet potatoes are cut into slices, the actual layering is perfect for your kitchen crew! This savory sweet potato dish is sure to please everyone. 

Ingredients needed for this recipe:
  • sweet potatoes
  • fresh sage
  • Jarlsberg Cheese or Provolone Cheese
  • Half & Half or Whole Milk
  • Garlic Salt
  • Fresh Ground Pepper
You will also need the following:
