Scalloped Sweet Potato, Onion and Parmesan - a Quick Solution for a no-fuss side dish
So why is something so simple to make so delicious? I don't know, it just is. All you need is a mandolin, a peeled sweet potato, peeled regular potato, an onion, and grated parmesan.
Take a pan and cover with parchment paper, as shown in the first image. Drizzle with a thin layer of parmesan, then slice the potatoes 1/8" using the mandolin and layer them on top of the cheese. Then add the onion on top and another thin layer of parmesan. I also sprinkled a thin layer of Italian herbs on top at the end.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350*. That's all she wrote. After it comes out, carefully roll it up like a log. The cheese makes it stick together like a sheet. You could easily add other wondrous things, your imagination is the only limit. I would add things after the potatoes are cooked, then roll the additions into the log and bake again for a few minutes to crisp it up. Like a nice spinach gratin, for example. I cooked Italian sausages separately and rolled them into the log and toasted it again.
I made an orange sabayon-style sauce and it went really well with the dish.
The next day I made it again. In case I was over excited, but the results were the same. This time I just rolled it up, cut a big flat piece and added it to a burger bun with lettuce. So yummy, I had it for dinner.
Here it is rolled and sliced, added to a nice roast chicken dinner. I cooked it alongside the chicken in the oven.
Let me know if you try it!
