Wolfgang Puck's Gratin of Sweet Potatoes
A Savory Sidedish for Your Next Dinner Party
Wolfgang Puck shares a perfect recipe for holiday dinners with guests. Try out his Gratin of Sweet Potatoes.
Preheat the oven to 375.
In a 10-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Over medium-high heat, sauté the apples until slightly caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes.
Place the potatoes in a medium bowl and season with salt, cinnamon, pepper and nutmeg. Pour over the cream and mix well.
Butter a 10-inch gratin dish and layer with half the potatoes, one overlapping the other. Cover with the apples and arrange the remaining potatoes on top. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from the oven.
Turn the oven to 500. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the potatoes and dot with the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Return to the oven to brown, watching carefully to prevent burning.
