With doing daycare, I find that I make a lot of casseroles (or hot dishes:) for the kids. Makes it much easier to get the nutrition they need in one meal. One of the kids' favorites is this casserole I came up with when I didn't have regular potatoes. It has become my number one comfort food, as it's creamy, with a hint of sweetness to it!
Sweet Potato Casserole
1 lb. hamb browned with onions
1-2 sweet potatoes (depending on size)
1-2 large carrots chopped
4-5 Tbl butter
4-5 Tbl flour
1 clove garlic
To make the white sauce, melt the butter in saucepan. For a casserole like this, I usually use 5 Tbl butter, but adjust to your liking. Add minced garlic and cook for a few seconds, add flour, cook for a minute or so and add milk so the sauce is the right consistency. I would guess I add a half a cup? Maybe? Add hamb and sweet potatoes, mix all together and bake covered at 350 degrees until sweet potatoes are soft.
