A potato dish to satisfy those who love both traditional mashed potatoes and mashed yams.

Ingredients

6
large baking potatoes
6
large yams
1/3
to 1/2 cup milk
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/3
cup maple-flavored syrup
1/3
cup butter or margarine, softened

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350ºF. Pierce baking potatoes and yams several times with fork to allow steam to escape. Bake 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours or until tender.
  • 2 Cut baking potatoes lengthwise in half; scoop out insides, leaving a thin shell. Mash potatoes in medium bowl until no lumps remain. Add small amounts of milk, beating after each addition. (Amount of milk needed to make potatoes smooth and fluffy depends on kind of potatoes.) Add 1/3 cup butter, the salt and pepper; beat vigorously until potatoes are light and fluffy. Fill half of potato shells with mashed potatoes.
  • 3 Peel yams; mash in medium bowl. Stir in maple syrup and 1/3 cup butter. Fill remaining potato shells with mashed yams.
