Sweet spuds stand in for the standard yellow-fleshed variety, and an aromatic topping of rich maple syrup, buttery pecans and a chili-based seasoning makes for a sweet, nutty, slightly spicy take on the classic gratin.

How to make

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

  • Step 2

    Arrange potato slices vertically in 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate, packing in rows to fit. Pour in broth; season with salt and pepper. Cover loosely with foil. Bake until slightly softened, about 45 minutes. Remove from oven.

  • Step 3

    Stir together maple syrup, butter and peri peri spice in small bowl; brush half of the glaze onto potatoes.

  • Step 4

    Bake, uncovered, until potatoes are golden and fork-tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Stir pecans into remaining glaze; sprinkle evenly over potatoes. Bake, uncovered, until pecans are fragrant and toasted, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven; let cool 10 minutes before serving.
