Potatoes being one of my favorite foods, I try to mix things up by trying new things. I especially love eating potatoes during the autumn and winter months, though they can be enjoyed any time.

  1. Wash the potatoes, cutting off bad spots, and cut each in half.

  2. Place, skin side down, on a baking sheet and bake for 1 hour.

  3. Mash the white potato with the peel.

  4. Scoop the sweet potato out of the peel and add to the potatoes, mixing the two together.


  • Use potatoes from your garden for the ultimate in money savings and nutrition.

  • Try different types of potatoes.

 Serving Suggestions

  • Serve with a beef or chicken roast.

  • A side salad will also go nice with these potatoes.
