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?
