Default 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.
An excellent pizza is shared with the ones you love!

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