Sweet Potato Dauphinoise

Sweet, yet deliciously cheesy and creamy this sweet potato dauphinoise makes for a perfect accompaniment to a meal or as a vegetarian dish on its own.

If you don't tolerate potato too well, then I'm afraid this recipe may not be the best for you to try. However, if you do manage potato which is paired well with reasonably good blood sugar levels, then this may make a change from the same old boring spuds!

This dauphinoise is made with very thin layers of sweet potato. Sweet potato is still a carbohydrate, but it is tolerated slightly better than normal (white/red) potatoes for many. Served individually in a small ramekin, a small sweet potato was enough to serve 2.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 200ºc (this is based on my fan assisted oven)
  2. Use your finger with softened butter to grease the insides of your ramekins. Use lots so that they are thoroughly lined in a thin layer of butter and set aside
  3. Peel the sweet potato and slice finely (approx 1.5mm thick - the thickness of a 20p piece)
  4. Layer the sweet potato slices in a spiral so that each slice overlaps until the ramekins are 3/4 full
  5. Warm the double cream, garlic, rosemary and seasoning in a pan until boiling (be careful it does not boil over), then reduce the heat to a simmer for 5 minutes
  6. Pour the warm cream over the potatoes until the the cream just reaches the edges of the top slice, then press down on top to immerse the potato fully
  7. Top the ramekins with grated cheddar or Gruyère and cover with tin foil
  8. Place the covered ramekins on a baking tray (this is important as the dauphinoise potatoes often bubble over whilst baking) and place in the centre of the oven for 20 minutes
  9. After 20 minutes, remove the foil and check to see how well the potatoes have cooked by testing with a knife. They should be soft, if not, add an additional 5 - 10 minutes
  10. Uncover the ramekins and bake for another 10 minutes or until the top is bubbling and slightly crispy
