Prep Time: 10 Minutes     Cook time: 1 Hour 15 Minutes     Serves: 6

Baked russet and sweet potatoes with Maille Mustard.


  • 2 sweet potatoes
  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 1/2 stick of butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk, room temperature
  • 1 tsp Maille Dijon Original mustard
  • 1 tsp Maille Old World Style Mustard
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese, grated, plus extra for topping

  1. Preheat the oven at 350F degrees.

  5. Slowly add in your milk, constantly stirring. Continue to stir until the sauce thickens.
  6. Add both mustards to the sauce, stirring to combine.
  7. Add your seasonings, fresh herbs, and Gruyere cheese.
  8. Butter a baking dish and arrange your potato slices. Pour the sauce over the top.
  9. Top with more Gruyere cheese.
  10. Bake for 45 minutes covered with aluminum foil.
  11. Uncover and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly.
