Ingredients

  Crust:

  • 2 cups (500 mL) California Walnuts, ground
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) melted butter

    
  Filling:

  • 2 medium-sized sweet potatoes, thinly sliced

2 In separate bowl, combine sweet potatoes, cream, thyme, salt, pepper and nutmeg; stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or overnight.

3 On walnut base, layer sweet potatoes; drizzle with remaining cream mixture and sprinkle with cheese. In centre of 350F (180C) oven, bake 45 minutes or until potatoes are tender and filling is golden and bubbly. Let stand 10 minutes; slice and serve warm.
