This dish may not look all that impressive, but it tastes great…true comfort food!
serves 6 ( 4 points+)
- ⅔ c. fat - free chicken broth
- ⅓ c. heavy cream
- 1-½ lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
- salt to taste
- 1 T. flour
- 2 T. Parmesan cheese, grated
Spray and 8" square baking dish with nonstick spray. Preheat oven to 375
Combine chicken broth and heavy cream in a measuring cup.
Place ⅓ of the potatoes in the bottom of the baking pan. Sprinkle with salt and ½ T. flour. Pour ⅓ of the broth mixture over the potatoes. Layer another ⅓ of the potatoes over the top. Sprinkle with salt and the remaining ½ T. flour. Pour over another ⅓ of the broth mixture.
Top with remaining ⅓ potatoes, sprinkle with salt, pour over last ⅓ of broth mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 35-40 minutes or until liquid is reduced ( the gratin will not be entirely dry) and top is browned. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
