This is from my brother Peter, a former owner of a vegetarian restaurant. I was looking for something different to do with sweet potatoes. This isn't like some of the extra-sweet versions, but it is awfully good!


  1. Peel and cut potatoes into thin slices.
  2. Layer potatoes in casserole dish, dotting with butter and adding salt and pepper to taste in each layer.
  3. Don't press down on the layers, you need to leave room for the cream.
  4. Pour cream over all.
  5. It should come to about half an inch below the top of the baking dish.
  6. Bake 50-60 minutes at 375.
  7. Make sure you put a cookie sheet under the dish, as this may bubble over while cooking.

Sure wish I had made more of this for Thanksgiving. I don't particularly care for sweet potatoes, and this was really good. Not many in my family will eat sweet potatoes, either so I only made a small bit, but will definitely make a bigger pan for Christmas diner. Thank you, very yummy.

This was outstanding. I'm not much of a candied sweet potato person so this hit the spot.There is only one work to describe this dish and that it is decadent!

There's nothing better than a great recipe with 3 ingredients. This is a staple in my household, although I occasionally add some fresh thyme. It's really wonderful!
