Sweet and White Mashed Potato Swirl
White potatoes and sweet potatoes mashed and then swirled together make a great side dish.
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 4-6
  • 1½ pounds white potatoes, peeled and diced in 2-inch pieces
  • 1½ pound sweet potatoes, peeled and diced in 2-inch pieces
  • 4 Tablespoons butter (divided)
  • ½ + cup warmed milk (divided)
  • Salt
  • Pepper (I use white pepper)
  1. Place white potatoes in bottom of saucepan, then sweet potatoes on top. Barely cover potatoes with water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer until potatoes are fork tender but not falling apart.
  2. Drain potatoes. Remove sweet potatoes from the pan and place in another bowl. Mash white potatoes your favorite way. I normally use a masher--sometimes a portable mixer. Add 2 tablespoons (or more) butter and ⅓ cup (+ more as necessary) milk until desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Repeat step two with sweet potatoes. Start with about 2 tablespoons of milk, adding until consistency matches white potatoes.
  4. Plop mashed sweet potatoes back into pan with mashed white potatoes and take a couple folds with a spoon to barely mix. Move to serving dish being careful not to mix too much.
