This wonderful, bright meal-in-one from our Test Kitchen is filled with layers of flavor. Gouda cheese and bacon lend a rich, savory taste to the sweet potato and spinach combination.

Ingredients

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 cups shredded Gouda cheese
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled cooked bacon

Directions

  1. Place sweet potatoes in a 1-1/2-qt. microwave-safe dish; add water. Cover and microwave on high for 8-10 minutes or until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, saute onion in butter until tender. Add spinach. Stir in flour and seasonings until blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat.
  3. Drain sweet potatoes. Spread half of the spinach mixture into a greased 11x7-in. baking dish. Top with half of the potatoes and cheese. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with bacon. Cover and bake at 375° for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly.
