serves four

1 cup diced onion
2 cloves garlic
6 slices smoky bacon, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 lbs. peeled sweet potatoes in lengthwise slices, 1/8 inch thick
1 1/2 cups oka cheese
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup bread crumbs

In a saucepan saute onion, garlic and bacon in oil until the onions are slightly browned. In a separate pot bring chicken broth and cream to boil. Set aside.

Grease a casserole dish with a little butter or oil and layer in with sliced sweet potatoes. After each layer, sprinkle some bacon and onion mixture and a little cheese. Moisten each layer with 2 tablespoons of chicken broth and cream. Repeat the layering until the potatoes are about 1/2 an inch from the top.

In a separate frying pan, melt butter and combine with bread crumbs. Sprinkle this mixture over the sweet potatoes. Place casserole dish in 350°F oven for about 1 hour. Do not cover. If bread crumbs become to dark, simply lower the oven to 300°F and continue cooking until a knife is easily inserted through the sweet potatoes.
