Yukon Gold and Sweet Potato Gratin

"This from Nov., 2005 Bon Appetit. Another one which I made several times in the ensuing months, then forgot until I just found it misfiled ! Recipe calls for 13x9" baking dish, but I use the next larger size, since estimating amounts of potato slices is inexact ! Easy to prepare ahead and bake when you start the rest of the meal."

  1. This is a delicious tasting recipe. I too cut the recipe down and baked it in a square dish. I have to say, that when I pulled it out of the oven before I added the cream, it didn't look very appealing. However after adding the cream and letting it cook more and brown on top, the final dish looked great. The funny thing is I just read some of the other reviews and one of them says that it was great with the onions. I said to myself, what onions? So I checked the ingredients again and began to laugh, as there were no onions. Certainly I think onions and bacon could send this recipe to new heights of goodness! Made for LETS PARTY 2011 tag.
     
  2. Scaled back for 3 servings and cooked in an 8x8 pan, used hi-low milk (not as low in fat as skim but lower than whole) and heated up milk in the microwave and used thickened cream (double cream) as that was all had and half sweet potatoe (1/2 lb) and the other half Nadines as we don't get yukon gold and baked at 200C fan forced oven.
     
  3. Delicious! A tasty combination of potatoes! The onions added much flavor! We will certainly have this vegetable dish again since it will go with any entree possible! Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ #38 Swap March 2010.
     
  4. Fantastic!! I cut down the cooking time by at least half by starting them off in the microwave for 10 min first (I used a round glass casserole with lid) I also skipped on the butter, I dont think it's required at all and who needs the extra calories. The thyme went lovely with the sweetness of the Kumera (red sweet pot) reviewed for Aussie Recipe Swap #32.
     
  5. I now have a new favorite gratin potato dish! This was very flavorful and was an excellent side with our lemon broiled salmon. I will definitely make this recipe again. Made and reviewed for the 28th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.

<p>This photo of DH and me was taken on our 50th anniversary, 12/27/08. Both DDs and 2 DGC celebrated with us. <br /><br />DH and I live about 40 miles north of Baltimore, in what WAS rural 40 years ago. We are empty-nesters. Have 2 adult daughters, 2 great SIL, and 3 grandchildren --1 is 22, and 16 year old twins. In September of 2011, we were presented with our first GREAT-grandson !&nbsp; They all live in PA. and are VERY busy people ! <br /><br />I retired from MANY facets of nursing 12 years ago, and LOVE being in charge of myself ! <br /><br />We had a 4-couple Gourmet Group for so many years, that we ran out of new things and themes. Now we meet at restaurants, to avoid trashing the kitchen as well as the budget. We started with 7 course meals! None of us can DO that anymore !! <br />We have been VERY fortunate to be able to travel more than we ever dreamed !! Have B&amp;B'd in Great Britain many times; visited Italy, Greece, France, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Switzerland, and Iceland (in February !) We would far rather stay in B&amp;B, or self-catering apartment or dwelling, than be on a tour. Our trip in '09, was to 2 small towns in Sicily --Sant'Alfio, on the slope of Mount Etna, in a 15th century, converted winery --and a week on the north coast near Cefalu. Very few spoke English, but everyone was helpful and we managed to communicate, and had a wonderful time ! (Photos in Gallery on website below !) We&nbsp; returned there in Sept. '11, for a 2 week vinyard tour with a small group, led by our local wine store owner - whose family is still in Sicily ! <br /><br />DH is my photographer - (and a website designer) but he insists on set-up time as well as a hot meal ! I should plan ahead for serving appeal, so he can get the best shot. <br /><br />I am now a SIX year survivor of colon cancer, as of 5/11, and four year of thyroid. Angels on my shoulder found both lesions before I even had symptoms ! I strongly encourage screening colonoscopies starting at age 50 -- that is ONE which can be totally avoided ! <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /> <br />Was adopted by LMiller,RN <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br />Was adopted by RecipeReader <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/pacbanner.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br />Adopted ElaineAnn <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Adopted1smp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br />Was adopted by ANG11002 <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/smPACp.jpg border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br />Adopted *Pixie* <br /><br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/Zaar%20Food%20Photos/Food%20Photos%202008/herbspicesticker.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />Partner - PaulaG <br /><br /><img src=http://www.satsleuth.com/cooking/Swap14.JPG alt= /> l <br />Teamed with PaulaG, CarolAT, and Sonya01 <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PAC08Main.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />Adopted Kathy!!, DuChick, and Maito <br /><br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/adoptedspring08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />Adopted by Shirl(J) <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap # 16 <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Hebe-1.jpg alt= /> <br />Partners -Kumquat the Cat's Friend, Red Chef Mama, and Twissis <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap #17 <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/boronia.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates - Chickee, Whatcha Cookin' Mom, and MarthaStewartWanabe <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap #18 <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/BottleBrush.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates - Jewelies, djmastermum, and mummamills <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap #19 with joey <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/quokka2-1.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates- Elmotoo, Heydarl, Baby Kato <br />adopted Joey - Madilayn <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap #20, Sept/08 <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/FringeLily.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates -I'm Pat, Porfavorcorona, pollyw <br /><br /><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/UsedBooksBanner2.jpg alt= /> <br />Partner - Connie C. <br /><br /><img src=http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/AussieRecipeSwap.gif alt= /> <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap #21 <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Dryandra-1-1.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates - Jewelies, Baby Kato, Lavender Lynn <br /><br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Cooking-Kangaroo-1-1.jpg alt= /> <br /><br /><a href=http://s270.photobucket.com/albums/jj117/tommysmom_photos/?action=view?t=shoeboxswap.jpg target=_blank><img src=http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj117/tommysmom_photos/shoeboxswap.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br />Partner - SrtaMastra <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/IWasAdoptedfall08.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />Adopted by Slatts <br /><img src=http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/PACfall08partic.jpg border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br />Adopted ChamoritaMomma and tonyp063 <br /><br />Australia/NZ Swap #22 <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Erica-1-1.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates- Sarah_Jayne, busyozmum, mummamills <br />2 phutukawas and a pukeko in a ponga tree! <br /><img src=http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c105/jewelies/Pohutukawa-2-1.jpg alt= /> <br />Teammates - Dotty2 and Sheynath <br /><br /><img src=http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z205/jubespage/2008AussieNZChristmasCardExchange.gif alt= /> <br />Sent to Sonya01, received from Sarah !.
