Spiced Sweet Potato Not-gratin

Submitted by: TAMRACLOVE

Introduction

A slightly sweet, holiday-spiced twist on the old comfort food favorite! Great with a lean baked ham and green salad. A slightly sweet, holiday-spiced twist on the old comfort food favorite! Great with a lean baked ham and green salad.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    3 medium sweet potatoes, sliced thinly
    1 large onion, sliced into rings
    olive oil spray
    salt & pepper to taste
    2C water
    1/4C brown sugar
    2t. chicken bullion
    1t ginger, ground
    1/2t. nutmeg, ground
    dash cloves
    dash allspice

Directions

1. Heat oven to 375. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with EVOO spray.
2. Place 1 layer of potatoes into pan - be sure to stagger the potatoes and leave air pockets. Separate the onion slices into rings and add a layer of onions. Spray the layer lightly with EVOO, then sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
3. Repeat this layer 2 more times to use up all the potatoes and onion - end with onion on top.
4. In a medium saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add bullion, brown sugar and spices.
5. Pour spiced liquid over potatoes. Cover casserole with foil and bake 45 min. Uncover and bake 15 minutes more, or until potatoes are browned.

Originally, I thickened the liquid with cornstarch, but the oven made it watery anyway, so I took it out - save the calories!!

I think this recipe would be even better starting out with orange or pineapple juice, instead of water + bullion.
