Sweet Potatoes Anna

If you've got a 9 to 10-inch cast-iron skillet, use it here-otherwise an ovenproof nonstick skillet will work fine. While we've used 3 different color sweet potatoes-orange, white and purple fleshed, feel free to use your favorite.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Thinly slice the potatoes using a mandoline, the slicing blade of a food processor or a chef's knife.

Place the butter in the cast-iron or ovenproof skillet and melt it in the preheated oven. Remove and swirl the butter around to coat, and then pour the butter into a dish.

Arrange the sweet potato slices in overlapping concentric circles in the skillet, brushing each layer with some of the butter, sprinkling with salt and pepper, and pressing down to compact, until all of the potatoes and butter have been used. Place a layer of foil directly on the top layer and place an empty pan on top to pack the potatoes down.

Bake until the potato cake can be easily pierced with a knife indicating the potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes. Run a metal spatula around the edge and then carefully invert the potato cake onto a serving platter.

    So easy to make (for this not-so-fabulous cook tasted great and was perfect with the Christmas Turkey. I didn't have a mandoline, but was able to slice very thin with a sharp knife. I really like no-fuss dishes- more time to spend with family.

    Easy and tasty. Another winner by the Beekman Boys. Served this in place of the traditional sweet potatoes that grace our table at the holidays. Paired a bit of leftovers with some Beekman Blaak and the counterpoint of sweet to slight pungent was amazing!

    Another winner! I made this as a side to go with turkey and had the pumpkin bread as dessert and both were a hit with my family! Try it out! You won't be disappointed! Love the Beekman Boys show!
