Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Unlike traditional scalloped potatoes, Scalloped Sweet Potatoes are not packed full of butter, cheese, and cream. Nonetheless, they're tasty and have a similar consistency and are sweeter of course. The creamy sauce is made with a little bit of reduced-fat cream cheese, some honey, a few tablespoons of milk and a touch of butter.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces reduced-fat (Neufchâtel) cream cheese
  • 6 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons orange honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2-4 sweet potatoes (600 grams total)

Directions

  1. Heat 6 cups of water in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Peel sweet potatoes and slice into 1/4 thick bite size pieces. I cut the sweet potato lengthwise and then made the 1/4 inch slices.
  3. Boil the sweet potatoes for about 10 minutes or until you can easily pierce a piece of sweet potato with a fork. As the sweet potatoes are boiling, prepare the sauce.
  4. Melt the butter, cream cheese and honey and whisk until smooth. (If you have a mini-suace pan, you can use that. Otherwise you can microwave the ingredients in a glass measuring cup.)
  5. Drain the sweet potatoes and move them into an oven-safe casserole dish or 9x9 glass pan.
  6. Pour the sauce mixture over the sweet potatoes.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes at 350°F.
