Creamy, scrumptious Sweet Potato Dauphinoise, such dreamy comfort food is a perfect side dish anytime.
The original recipe uses potatoes but my take is to use sweet potatoes, or kumara, as we call them downunder. Personally I just prefer the taste and I think it makes the dish more creamier. Regardless, if potatoes are on your primal/paleo menu use them if you prefer or even mix the two.
The dish has a disturbing history, involving song birds eaten whole. However, I am recommending this to be served with a simple meat dish such as lamb cutlets or a perfectly cooked steak instead! Add some broccoli, steamed and with a smattering of freshly ground nutmeg.
This is one of those dishes that improve their flavour as time goes on. So if you have any leftover they are totally delicious fried up for breakfast the next day with bacon and eggs!
