Thanksgiving is a potato lover’s dream. Mashed, baked, au gratin, scalloped, or fried, potatoes are certainly one of the most versatile vegetables of the holiday. And of course I can never decide which I like better, plain white mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes.
With these Two-Toned Twice Baked Potatoes
you don’t have to choose. A creamy layer of traditional white mashed potatoes is topped with a layer of vibrant sweet potatoes.
You can bake the potatoes according to your favorite method, whether it’s boiling or baking them in the oven. I chose to poke some holes in mine and throw them in the oven. When they’re done, just slice them in half and scrape out the pulp.
Of course you can doctor your potatoes with some fixings just like you would regular mashed potatoes. I added a little butter, sour cream, and milk to make them extra creamy.
Then just layer the mashed russet potatoes first followed by the sweet potato layer.
This potato dish is great because it can be prepared ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator until you need it. When ready, just pour on some melted butter for good luck and bake until nice and warm.
These are definitely a unique addition to the traditional Thanksgiving feast and are eye catching with beautifully layered colors!
