Sweet Potato & Wiener Gratin

Sweet Potato & Wiener Gratin

This is a gratin with a slight sweetness of sweet potatoes. The cheese and wiener sausages go together well. Nice for a solo lunch.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Sweet potato
100 g (1/2)
Wiener sausages
10 g
White flour
1 tablespoon
Consomme stock granules
1 teaspoon
Salt and pepper
a small amount
Pizza cheese
as desired
for frying


1. Cut the sweet potato into 1-1.5 cm cubes and briefly soak in water.
2. Drain the sweet potatoes then add to a heat-resistant container, wrap, and microwave until soft. Smash while they're still hot.
3. Cut the wieners in half diagonally. Thinly cut the onions.
4. Add oil to a frying pan and cook the wieners. Once cooked through, remove for now.
5. Wipe the oil in the frying pan, melt the butter, and cook the onions.
6. Once the onions have cooked, stop the heat. Add flour and mix.
7. Add milk little by little. While mixing, increase the heat from low to medium. Add the soup stock and flavor with salt and pepper.
8. Add smashed sweet potatoes. Bring to a boil while mixing slowly to create a creamy thickness.
9. Once you have your desired creaminess, transfer to a gratin dish.
10. Cover with enough cheese so that the wieners are only slightly visible.
11. Cook in an oven toaster for about 5 minutes (just enough to become golden brown) and it's complete.

Story Behind this Recipe

I wanted to consume sweet potatoes, including misshapen homegrown ones that I wouldn't be able to sell. This recipe came about after a few days of thinking of how to consume them.
