SERVINGS8 to 10

INGREDIENTS  

  • 3 sweet potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 8 grinds fresh black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves plus more for garnish

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Preheat the oven to 400┬░. In a glass measuring cup or small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave, then add all other ingredients (except the sweet potatoes). Whisk to combine.
  • Wash and peel the sweet potatoes, cutting away any bad spots. Slice them into thin rounds with a knife or a mandolin if you have one! About the width of poker chips!
  • Toss the sweet potatoes with the glaze in a large bowl, using your hands to get them evenly coated.
  • Arrange the slices in an oval casserole dish, stacking them back together and then fanning them out around the outside and then filling in the middle.
  • Cover tightly with tin foil and bake for 60 minutes. Remove the foil and BROIL for 5 to 10 minutes to brown and crisp up the top. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. Garnish with fresh thyme leaves and sprigs.

NOTES

Make Ahead Instructions

  • This entire dish can be made ahead raw without baking it a day in advance and kept covered in tinfoil in the fridge.  Then bake as instructed when ready.
  • You could also make the entire dish, bake it the full hour or maybe a little less, and transport it hot to the host’s house. Then just keep it warm in their oven until serving time, removing the foil so the top can crisp up. 
  • You could also make the dish, bake it a bit less than the full hour, then refrigerate it in the tinfoil a day in advance.  Then reheat/cook it the rest of the way just before serving.
