Mmm... Sweet Potatoes

webpetals Brought This Up

2004 Clarion classmate Marjorie M. Liu wanted sweet potato recipes, so here goes:

This came from a friend in the U.P. of Michigan and now our relations insist it be made with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners and any other excuse to have a big meal -- goes great with turkey, ham, lamb, whatever...

Sweet Potato Casserole

Serves 8-10

1 T olive oil
3 large onions, sliced
1 large clove garlic

Heat oil, sauté onions.  Add garlic, sauté 2 minutes.

3 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled sliced
1 cup chicken broth
salt & pepper

Stir into sauté, cover, simmer until tender.
Put mixture in greased 2-quart casserole.

Coat 1/4 cup bread crumbs with 1 t olive oil, spread on top.
Broil 2-3 minutes til brown.

No Longer Just One Recipe

Sweet potatoes and yams have made a certain renaissance the last couple of years, after being confined in the North to "Candied Yams With Marshmallows" and Sweet Potato Pie in the South. Completely unrelated to this post, we had baked sweet potatoes last night with salmon loaf. I eat the skins, too, Mrs. Dr. Phil does not. To each their own.
