Sweet Potato Gratin with Red Prince® Apples
This side is simple to make but is incredibly flavourful. It would be perfect to enjoy during the week, or as part of a special occasion menu to share with friends and family.
3 yellow onions, finely sliced
3 Tbsp butter, separated
3 Red Prince Apples, thinly sliced
2 large sweet potato, thinly sliced with a mandolin
1/2 cup Bothwell smoked Gouda, grated
1/4 cup Bothwell red chili cheddar cheese
Sauté your sliced onions with 2 tbsp of butter until golden brown. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Thinly slice your sweet potatoes and Red Prince® apples using a mandolin.
Combine grated cheeses together.
Coat a 9-inch non-stick pan with the remaining 1 tbsp butter.
Layer the sweet potatoes in the pan first, followed by the apples, then onions then cheese. Continue layering in this order until you have used up your ingredients (about 4 layers).
Cover your dish in aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove cover and bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes.
Over a cutting board or large plate, flip your pan upside down to remove your Gratin from the pan. Slice and serve with confidence.
