Yum! Scalloped potatoes are my kind of comfort food, and I like them even more when they are scalloped sweet potatoes!
I always think of this side dish as a treat for special occasions, but it’s easy enough to make for a weeknight dinner. It only takes a few minutes to prep the ingredients. Then, you can work on the rest of the meal while it’s in the oven.
The dish is wonderful, when you first make it. And, leftovers taste just as good the following day.
We always eat the skin of our sweet potatoes. However, you may peel yours, if you must.

Add the rest of the potatoes and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic.

Remove from oven and remove foil.
Return to oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until potatoes are tender and cheese is golden brown.
