what you'll need

  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes peeled and thinly sliced
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose einkorn flour 1.125 oz
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Gouda cheese shredded

let's do it

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Cook bacon in a medium sauté pan until crispy then remove and crumble, reserving 1 Tbsp of the drippings in the pan.
  • Add onion to the pan with bacon drippings and sauté until translucent. Add garlic, stir then remove from heat. Toss with bacon crumbles and set aside.
  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Whisk in flour for 1 minute then slowly whisk in the milk until there are no lumps. Simmer for approximately 5 minutes until thickened. NOTE: We strongly recommend you weigh your einkorn flour, if possible, for better accuracy. If you don’t have a scale, fluff the flour with a fork before you measure it in a cup.
  • Stir in salt, pepper and thyme then remove from heat. Spread a layer of sweet potato slices evenly in a 9" x 13" pan, overlapping slightly. Season with salt and pepper then spoon ⅓ of the bacon mixture over the potatoes. Pour ⅓ of the milk mixture on top and sprinkle with ⅓ of the cheese.
  • Repeat steps until the potatoes and bacon are gone. Finish with the milk mixture and cheese.
  • Bake 35–45 minutes, or until bubbly. Enjoy!
