Holiday Sweet Potatoes
4 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced
3 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. flour
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 c. heavy cream
1/4 c. dried bread crumbs
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
In a saucepan melt butter. Add flour & garlic and stir until color deepens a bit. Add cream and simmer until mixture thickens slightly.
Layer sweet potatoes in a buttered casserole dish.
Pour sauce over and bake @ 325 degrees for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with bread crumbs and cheese and bake for 10-15 more minutes.
For Christmas dinner I was invited to Mrs. S's in-laws...... got that?? By BFF's husbands parents - which I thought was about the sweetest thing in the whole entire world for them to invite me. The chickies had ran off with their dad (and rightly so - they spent Christmas eve & morning with me), so I was "unattended". LOL So, I took a veggie tray and these two dips:
Vegetable Dip ****
Of the two, I liked this one best. It was creamy and fresh tasting and perfect to dip a veggie into. And I had some of the heavy cream left over from the sweet potatoes that needed to be used up!
Italian Vegetable Dip *** 1/2
This one was too chunky for veggies - it might be better with chips or a nice sourdough to dip into.
I hope your holiday table was filled with as much love, laughter, and joy as mine was!
