Sweet Potato & Pear Gratin

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays! I LOVE to EAT and of course LOVE to cook!! Here is a great side dish that is simple enough to do any night of the week, but is yummy enough to add to your Thanksgiving Menu!

2 sweet potatoes, sliced thin

3 firm pears
3 Tb butter
2 tsp fresh ginger
1/3 c maple syrup
2 tsp lemon zest
1 Tb lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt

Boil potatoes 20-25 mins until tender/firm, drain & cool; melt butter, add ginger, stir in syrup, zest, juice & salt. In a greased dish alternate layers of potato & pear. Bake 15 min at 350 pour butter mix over top and bake additional 15 mins until golden.
