Thai Sweet Potatoes

Go Bold With Butter

These sweet potatoes are served in the familiar fashion of an au gratin potato, baked in a butter sauce that's infused with bright Thai-inspired flavors like ginger, garlic and chili sauce. It's a great side dish variation for chicken, pork, beef and even fish. This recipe couldn’t be simpler. Simply peel and thinly cut your sweet potatoes at the same thickness to ensure an even cooking time. Then layer the rounds in a baking dish and pour the Thai flavored butter sauce evenly over the potatoes, bake, garnish and serve.
