How to Make It

Step 1

Heat the oven to 375°F.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat.  Add the shallots and cook for 5 minutes or until tender and lightly browned.  Remove the skillet from the heat.

Brush the bottom and sides of a 9x13x2-inch baking dish with 1 tablespoon butter.  Arrange half the sweet potatoes in the baking dish, overlapping slightly.  Sprinkle with half the shallots.  Repeat with the remaining sweet potatoes and shallots.

Step 4

Stir the broth, heavy cream, thyme and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl.  Pour the broth mixture over the sweet potatoes. Cover the baking dish.

Step 5

Bake for 20 minutes.  Uncover the baking dish.  Stir the bread crumbs, cheese and the remaining butter in a small bowl.  Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture over the sweet potato mixture.
