Gluten-Free Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

scalloped potatoes sweet potato

Wow! These were so good that I ate them for breakfast the next day & I’m pretty confident you will love them too! I am such a sucker for a good scalloped potato, but gluten generally gives me headaches so I opt to avoid it. Thus, I decided to make a gluten/grain-free version. I also wanted to try to spice things up by using sweet rather than white potatoes. I think you’ll find it tastes just as delicious with a hint more sweetness from the sweet potato.
