Sweet Potato Casserole with Bacon, Cheddar Cheese & Arugula

Ingredients:

4 large sweet potatoes (about 1 lb each), peeled and cubed into small cubes (use a mandolin or food processor if you don’t have a knife)

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (I used Monterey Jack)

1/2 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt (or milk of your choice) *see note below* *optional* add 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, chives or other herbs of your choice to the top before baking.

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 9×13 pan with foil and spray it lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Place the sweet potatoes in a medium saucepan over high heat until they are just tender when pierced with a fork, about 5 minutes. Transfer them to the prepared baking dish and sprinkle them generously with salt and pepper. Stir in shredded cheese, then add the milk (or sour cream) and stir again.

Spread the top with sour cream (or plain yogurt), or sprinkle chopped fresh herbs. (Optional) Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the center is heated through.
