Total time: 3 hours | Serves 8
  • 2 large baking potatoes (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 1 large sweet potato (about 3/4 pound)
  • 2 to 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • Salt, pepper

Step 1Peel the baking and sweet potatoes and slice them 1/8 inch thick.

Step 2Combine the eggs, whipping cream, garlic and shallot and blend well.

Step 3Heat the oven to 300 degrees. In a 13x9-inch baking dish, arrange 1 layer of sliced baking potatoes, then sprinkle them with some of the cheese and season to taste with salt and pepper. Top them with a layer of sweet potatoes, then more cheese, salt and pepper. Keep alternating layers until all potatoes are used, ending with a layer of cheese. Pour the cream mixture over the top and cover the pan with foil. Bake for 2 hours.

Step 4Remove the foil and bake until the potatoes are golden brown, another 40 minutes.
