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 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! 

With the sweet potato harvest underway, now is the time make this dish! It is so delicious, I did not want this 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 entrée, but especially so with pork or chicken! Plus it is pretty delicious all on its own as a meatless entrée...


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 in the family 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 and mildly sweet potato dish is sure to please everyone. 




Notes about this recipe:

While it looks complicated, rest assure, it is not!

It is also not a sweet, sweet potato dish. You will enjoy this with any entrée you choose. 

Fresh sage is delicious, mild in comparison to dried.

    1. I understand, sometimes I make a gratin and it goes all over the oven floor, still tastes good, but not real attractive.

  15. . I always grow sage in a little pot on my deck, but seldom use it. I think this recipe would be perfect for us. Sounds absolutely delicious.

    1. I started with a few herbs this year, chives, thyme and rosemary. But sage would be very nice, it is so different fresh, and I love the purple variety. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  17. We've been experimenting with switching out potatoes for sweet potatoes in various recipes and have liked the taste and the health benefits. I've never been a fan of the traditional Thanksgiving sweet potato recipes I've become a huge fan of sweet potatoes as a substitute.
