  • 2 pounds sweet potatoes (about 3 small, washed and peeled)
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup grated gruyere cheese (could sub with swiss cheese)
  • 3/4 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2-3 teaspoons fresh rosemary (1-2 sprigs, finely chopped)

Salt and Pepper to taste

    Optional: 1/4 cup bacon crumbles


      • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Butter a 9x9" pan and set aside. 
      • Combine the garlic, cream and fresh rosemary in a small saucepan over medium heat. Salt and pepper to taste. I added about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Simmer for a couple minutes. Add in 1/4 cup of the gruyere and 1/4 cup of the cheddar and stir until melted. 
      • Slice the sweet potatoes into thin circles and place in the pan in a row, overlapping a little. Sprinkle about 1/2 of the cheese over top. Then add another layer of potatoes and cheese. 
      • Pour the cream over top and then bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender. Top with bacon if desired. 


      • If you like onions, you can add 1/2 cup chopped onion in with the garlic and cream. 
      • If you want to take these sweet potatoes up a notch, add bacon to the top. All you need to do is cook 4 slices of bacon in a pan over medium heat and then crumble it once cooked and cooled. Then once the scalloped sweet potatoes are cooked you can sprinkle the bacon on top.
