Sweet Potato-Chipotle Gratin

Notes: Garnet and Jewel sweet potatoes have moist, dark orange flesh; they are often labeled as yams in grocery stores. If you use the drier yellow- or white-fleshed sweet potatoes, increase the cream used in step 1 to 2 cups and cover dish tightly before baking in step 3; uncover after 40 minutes of baking. You may assemble the gratin through step 2 up to 1/2 hour before baking.

Yield: Makes 8 to 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 canned chipotle chilies (about 1 tablespoon, including sauce)
  • About 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups whipping cream (see notes)
  • 3 1/2 pounds Garnet, Jewel, or other sweet potatoes (see notes)

Preparation

  1. 1. In a blender, whirl milk, chilies, and 1/2 teaspoon salt until smooth. Stir in cream. Reserve 1/3 cup of the cream mixture.
  2. 2. Peel and rinse sweet potatoes; cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick slices. In a shallow 2 1/2- to 3-quart casserole, arrange about a third of the sweet potatoes in an even layer, overlapping slices; evenly drizzle with about a third of the remaining cream mixture. Repeat to make two more layers of the sweet potatoes and cream.
  3. 3. Bake (covered, if using drier, pale-fleshed sweet potatoes; see notes) in a 400° regular or convection oven for 40 minutes. Uncover, if covered, and drizzle top evenly with about 3 tablespoons of the reserved cream mixture. Continue baking, basting occasionally with reserved cream mixture or pan juices, until potatoes are tender when pierced and top of gratin is browned, 15 to 25 minutes longer. Let stand about 5 minutes before serving. Scoop out portions with a large spoon.
