2 cups heavy cream
Juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup hot sauce
1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
Salt and pepper
1/2 cup chopped herbs, such as parsley, chives and dill
Butter, for greasing baking dish
4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced 1/8-inch thick
1 large onion, thinly sliced, 1/8-inch thick
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, plus additional for sprinkling
1/2 cup cheddar cheese
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, to top
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Whisk together cream, eggs, lemon juice, hot sauce, garlic and onion powders, salt, pepper and herbs.
Grease the bottom of a baking dish with butter. Arrange an even layer of sweet potatoes on the bottom of the dish, top with a third of the onions, 1/3 of the parm and 1/3 of the cheddar. Repeat procedure two more times finishing with cheddar cheese.
Pour cream mixture over the top and push potatoes down to allow the cream mixture to be absorbed.
