Sweet Potato-and-Yukon Gold Potato Gratin

How can you go wrong with potatoes, onions, and cream? You just can’t—the combination is the ultimate comfort food for me. For dinner tonight, Andy had a steak and I had leftover pork tenderloin from last night’s Cuban Sandwiches. This side dish came together in a snap and paired beautifully with the meat. Steamed broccoli rounded out our menu. I used a combination of cream leftover from a holiday dessert and skim milk, but any type of milk will work. As a finishing touch, I sprinkled a little Parmesan cheese over the top. Using two kinds of potatoes made the dish pretty and delicious. Enjoy!

1 sweet potato, peeled and thinly sliced
2 small Yukon Gold potatoes, thinly sliced
