Sweet Potatoes Parmesan

Gluten Free Living – 2014

Sweet Potatoes Parmesan has become one of my favorite sweet potato recipes. This casserole turned out beyond my expectations. In fact, it was so tasty I will probably make this one of my go-to sweet potato recipes in the future. I was trying to get rid of an abundance of sweet potatoes a couple of weeks ago. (And anyone who follows my blog knows how much I LOVE sweet potatoes!) I baked and mashed them, then decided to season them with thyme, parsley and rosemary (WOW), and also added a marvelous Italian cheese blend our H-E-B grocery stores carry that includes Mozzarella, Parmesan, Romano, Asiago, Provolone and Fontina cheeses. W-O-W!!! This casserole was so succulent and amazing.

I love fontina cheese anyway. It adds a little sweetness to anything you make with it. Add in all those different cheeses and herbs, and Sweet Potatoes Parmesan was truly one of the tastiest recipes I’ve ever eaten. While this recipe has cheese, milk and butter, it still does not have all the calories from most sweet potato casseroles that include a praline topping or all the marshmallow stuff. While this side dish does have some sweetness from the sweet potatoes, it is mostly a savory dish and quite wonderful at that!

Sweet Potatoes Parmesan is not only gluten free, it’s so filling and satisfying that you may want to consider this as a meatless main dish recipe. Serve with a salad and bread and you will be one happy camper. 🙂

If you’re looking for quick, easy, and delicious than you’ve come to the right recipe! Sweet Potato Parmesan is a good accompaniment to any main dish entree including chicken, beef, fish or pork–and probably game, although I never cook it. Give this recipe a try the next time you want to use up an excess of sweet potatoes. And, by all means, go find this cheese blend. Plain parmesan, or plain romano or any other plain cheese without the blend of the other five cheeses won’t give you the taste that makes this casserole superb. Also, please don’t leave off the rosemary, thyme or parsley or you won’t get the breadth of taste you need to experience this fabulous recipe.

Here’s a close up of Sweet Potatoes Parmesan. Most of the cheese on top melted into the sweet potatoes. I sprinkled a few flakes of cheese over this serving.
