This dish is delicious and decadent. The perfect side dish for Thanksgiving or any special dinner. They bake in a rich butter sauce so they absorb all of the flavor with none of the fluff of the traditional Sweet Potato and marshmallow casserole. Try this as an elegant alternative this year.
Baked Maple Mascarpone Sweet Potatoes
3 large sweet potatoes peeled and sliced in 1/4 ” rounds
4 T butter
8 0z mascarpone cheese
1 t chopped rosemary
2 T maple syrup
1/2 c milk.
Preheat the oven to 350. Arrange sweet potato slices in layers in an oven proof dish ( I used a 8×8)
In a sauce pan melt butter and mascarpone cheese together over medium heat. Add maple syrup, milk and rosemary and stir to combine.
Pour mixture over potatoes and cover with foil. Bake for 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Serve on the plate with a spoonful of the butter sauce from pan over the top.
