Mix up the flavor and style in your potato casserole with our recipe for Two-Toned Shredded Potatoes! This potato casserole is pretty enough to serve on holidays, and easy enough to make year-round. It's an all-around winner!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 Russet baking potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and shredded
  • 2 sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), peeled and shredded
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, place baking and sweet potatoes; sprinkle with salt. Add enough ice water to just cover potatoes and let stand 10 minutes. Drain potatoes well and place in baking dish. 
  3. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in butter and apple juice until butter is melted. Pour sugar mixture over potatoes.
  4. Bake 65 to 70 minutes, or until potatoes are tender, stirring halfway through baking.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

this recipe is AWFUL!!!! I followed the directions to the letter. after prescribed baking time they were soupy and raw yet. I baked for 30 more minutes and were still bad. I hate to throw away food so I ran them through the food processor and made mashed potatoes out of them, but they are way to sweet for our taste. Don't waste your time or money on this recipe!!

Hi Marcia - We're sorry to hear your family didn't enjoy this recipe. We've gone ahead and revisited the recipe in the Test Kitchen and made some changes which we think may improve this recipe. In case you were unsure, this side dish is supposed to be a sweet side dish, like sweet potatoes with marshmallows at Thanksgiving, which is why you may have found them too sweet. We hope you'll give this recipe another try or check out some of our savory mashed potatoes if that's what your family prefers. Thanks again for your comment!

Did you even get to taste it to see what they would taste like. I don't think I would like my potatoes sweet like that. Don't know if I would try them now.

This was awful. I made it correctly. After one hour and thirty minutes in the oven there was still to much liquid that would not cook down. I ended up trying to fry the potatoes to get them edible. Through them away.

Oh no, we're sorry this recipe didn't work out for you! We have a couple of tips if you decide to try it again: 1) When draining your potatoes, make sure to squeeze dry them so get rid of the excess water; 2) Make sure that the 2 potatoes that are used weigh close to 1 pound of potatoes. If they are not the right weight, then you may end up with more liquid left.
