Ham and Sweet Potato Casserole
Posted By: TUDDLES Sat 15 Oct 2005 4:56 pm

1 pound sweet potatoes
Grated rind of 1 orange
Freshly ground pepper
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/2 pound cooked ham, cut in pieces about l/8-inch thick
1-2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1-1/2 cups milk
2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Peel the sweet potatoes and either slice them very thin or grate them. Spread half the potatoes over the bottom of a shallow 1-1/2-quart casserole, sprinkle half of the grated orange rind over, and season with some pepper and nutmeg (if you are using country ham, you probably won't need salt; otherwise season lightly with salt). Arrange overlapping pieces of ham over the potatoes, spread mustard on top, then finish with the remaining potatoes and a little more of the pepper and nutmeg. Pour the milk over all. Cover lightly with foil and bake in a 375-degree F. oven 40 minutes, remove the foil, sprinkle sesame seeds over the top, and bake another 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender and all the liquid has been absorbed.
Yield: 3-4 servings
