3 small yams
1-2 pinches dried sage
1 pinch ground nutmeg
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. Horizon Organic unsalted butter, cut in pieces
1/2 cup Horizon Organic grated cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter a shallow one-quart casserole or gratin dish. Peel the yams and cut them in slices about 1/3-inch thick. Arrange the slices, slightly overlapping, in a single layer in the dish. Sprinkle with sage, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Dot with butter. Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 1/2 hours, until the yams are slightly tender. Top the gratin with cheese and bake for 30 minutes more, until the yams are very tender and the cheese is melted and golden.
