Need a good holiday go-along for your Thanksgiving feast or Christmas dinner? The eye-catching checkerboard pattern of our tasty Patchwork Potato side dish, is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Your company will enjoy a choice of their favorite potatoes: dill mashed potatoes or mashed sweet potatoes.

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups warm mashed potatoes
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter, melted, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (29-ounce) cans yams or sweet potatoes, drained
  • Grated peel of 1 lemon
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, combine mashed potatoes, 2 tablespoons melted butter, the dill, and pepper; mix well and set aside.
     
  3. In another medium bowl, mash yams then add lemon peel and remaining 2 tablespoons melted butter; mix well.
     
  4. Spoon five equal-sized scoops yam mixture into prepared baking dish, placing one scoop in each corner and one scoop in center. Using a spoon, shape each scoop into a square.Place mashed potato mixture in the four empty squares, dividing mixture equally. Pat down evenly to fill any gaps, forming a checkerboard pattern.
     
  5. Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until heated through.
Note

If you have a potato with green patches, cut them off, as they have been exposed too long to diret lighting and will have a slightly bitter taste. The rest of the potato will taste fine. Did you know that potatoes are still alive when they are picked, so they should be kept in a cool area, away from light to help prevent spoiling?

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
