Cheesy Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

Cheesy Scalloped Sweet Potatoes Recipe l

There’s no denying it (though I’m trying!), Thanksgiving is a week from tomorrow! I am about as unprepared as I’ve ever been.

Both my husband and I have been dealing with a couple different sicknesses the last few weeks that have left both of us with little desire to eat let alone think about preparing a large dinner.

However, I can’t put it off much longer!

I figure that I’m not the only one who hasn’t been able to plan for the big day like they wanted, so I’m sharing a few quick and easy Thanksgiving recipes in the next few days that can be made at the last minute but still taste great!

Easy Cheesy Scalloped Sweet Potatoes Side Dish from A Kitchen Addiction

The first of these easy recipes is cheesy scalloped sweet potatoes. Cheesy potatoes are a must at Thanksgiving!

It just isn’t the same without them, and doesn’t get much easier or tastier than these potatoes!

Instead of your typical scalloped potatoes, I’ve switched them up with sweet potatoes and a hint of nutmeg.

Combined with a creamy sauce and gooey cheese, these cheesy scalloped sweet potatoes will become the star of the dinner!

Quick and Easy Scalloped Sweet Potatoes Recipe from A Kitchen Addiction

All you need to do is mix together the sauce and slice some sweet potatoes. Layer the two in a dish and bake.

When it’s almost done, sprinkle with cheese and bake or broil until cheese is brown and bubbly.

See? I told you it was easy! You now have one less side dish that you have to worry about for the big meal!
