Good sweet potato recipe? - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



New Forno Bravo Forum Feature

Forno Bravo Forum Community,

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • Good sweet potato recipe?

    James, you were asking a few days ago if anyone had any good sweet potato recipes – I don’t know yet if this one is as good as it sounds to me (quite different!) but I generally like just about every recipe I have ever tried from this source (for Ontarians, the 2007 Holiday issue of LCBO’s Food & Drink magazine – for others, you can follow this link to some great recipes from past issues: LCBO Food and Drink ).

    I plan to try this soon – I think it’s easily adaptable to a brick oven, apart from the very last step - but if anyone beats me to it, let me know how it turns out:

    Sweet Potato & Sage Brulee

    4 sweet potatoes (about 3 lbs.)
    salt & fresh grated pepper
    2 eggs, beaten
    ½ cup whipping cream
    2 tbsp finely chopped sage
    1 cup fresh grated Parmesan chees
    3 tbsp butter
    ¼ cup brown sugar

    Preheat oven to 375F, prick sweet potatoes with a fork and bake for 45 minutes to one hour, till tender. Let cool.

    Scoop sweet potato flesh into a bowl (should have approx. 4 cups) and mash well. Season with salt & pepper. Whisk in eggs, whipping cream, sage & Parmesan. If mixture is very thick, stir in extra cream.

    Place in buttered medium-sized ovenproof baking dish, dot with butter & bake 20 minutes, till hot & softly set.

    Sift the brow sugar evenly on top, then broil, watching constantly, for 1 or 2 minutes, till sugar bubbles & turns golden. Serve while hot.

    Serves 8.

    Sarah, I would even add fresh basil, chives, a little mint, touch of curry, splash of Wershershire.

        I like to make a sweet potato gratin with thin sliced potatoes, sage, caramelized onions, ground ancho chili, and a béchamel/fontina white sauce.
