    This sweet potato gratin makes a nice change from the usual sweet potato casserole for Thanksgiving or any time. Thinly-sliced sweet potatoes are layered alternately with thinly-sliced apples and soaked in cream, then topped with a crunchy bread crumb-and-pecan topping. The whole dish is then baked until the sweet potatoes are tender and the topping gets toasty. It's a winning dish all the way around.
