  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1½ to 2 pounds sweet potatoes peeled and cooked in any manner
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar


  • 1. Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a gratin dish (or shallow baking dish) with some of the butter.
  • 2. Heat the potatoes if necessary and mash them with the butter, a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and a dash of nutmeg. Put the sweet potatoes in the gratin dish, and smooth the top.
  • 3. Sprinkle the top with the chopped walnuts. Bake until the dish is hot and golden on top, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 4. Remove the dish from the oven. Sprinkle the top evenly with the brown sugar. Turn on the broiler and adjust the rack to about 4 inches from the heat source. Broil, watching carefully and turning the dish as necessary. When the sugar bubbles and browns, it's ready. Let it sit for a few minutes before serving.
