using sweet and white potatoes together
I'm thinking of making some kind of gratin or casserole using the two together. Any suggestions? Thanks.
A favorite favorite of ours is from Sunset magazine years ago--
Roasted Red and Yellows
3 sweet potatoes or yams, scrub 'em, cut into chunks
2 pounds red thin-sknned potatoes, scrubbed and chunked
3 small to medium onions, skinned and quartered
3 TBS olive oil
salt and pepper
sherry, balsamic, cider, or ? vinegar --optional
Simply toss potatoes and onions in the olive oil, roast at 425F (shallow pan) until brown and tender. (About 1 hour) Season (sprinkle almost any vinegar on top if desired.) It all comes out sweet, and crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.
i use them together in scalloped potatoes. it seems like the sweet potato cooked a little faster than the white so i slice them a thicker. also its good together as potato pancakes or latkes.
