I like to push the boundaries from time to time. I had some leftover cooked pumpkin and so I decided to do something savoury with it instead of something sweet. Lord knows I don't need any more sugar in my life! This savoury potato dish turned out really lovely.
Layers of thinly sliced sweet potatoes and white potatoes, baked in a lucious cream and pumpkin sauce . . . a sauce that is so easy to make even a child could do it. You simply heat the cream and pumpkin together with a bit of garlic and some seasoning.
You just pour the sauce between the layers as you are creating them. I like to alternate the potato slices for looks. You also sprinkle a mix of cheeses between the layers . . .
It's so very simple and so very delicious. People will think you have slaved all day, but it takes merely minutes to put it together. I like recipes like that. Very little effort, but mega results! It's win/win all round! It would make an excellent side dish for the holidays!
