Sweet Potato Gratin with Red Prince Apples


3 Red Prince Apples, thinly sliced

2 large sweet potato, thinly sliced with a mandolin

3 onions, finely sliced

3 Tbsp butter

1/2 cup Bothwell smoked Gouda, grated

1/4 cup Bothwell red chili cheddar cheese Sauté your onions with 2 Tbsp of butter until golden brown. Set aside. Using a 9 inch non stick pan thinly coat with the remaining butter. Thinly slice your potato and apple using a mandolin. Combine grated cheeses together.


Layer your potatoes in the pan first, followed by your apples then onions then cheese. Continue layering in this order until you have used up your ingredients (about 4 layers).

Preheats oven to 400 degrees. Cover your dish in tinfoil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove cover and bake another 5 minutes. Remove from oven and let set for 5 minutes. Over a cutting board turn pan upside down to remove your Gratin from the pan. Slice and serve with confidence.
