This comforting sweet potato bake is easy enough for weeknight dinners despite being worthy of a special occasion side!
medium, washed and not peeled sweet potatoes
sharp cheddar cheese freshly grated
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 180°C / 356°F.
Grease an oven dish with butter or nonstick spray.
Slice the sweet potatoes thinly with the peel on.
In a medium-size saucepan over medium-high heat, add the butter and melt.
Whisk in the flour and slowly whisk in the milk.
Add in the cheese and mix until cheese is melted. Set aside.
Layer the bottom of an oven dish with half of the sweet potatoes, sprinkle with thyme and seasoning. Layer the remaining sliced sweet potatoes, season and cover with the remaining cheese sauce.
