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
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 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.

Only gave it the one star because I had to. This is WAY TOO SWEET! Candy isn't this sweet. Shame that it's being thrown out. Was looking forward to it. But, I will use the 2 tone shreeded idea and use butter or olive oil and seasonings.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen took a second look at this recipe and made some changes. You'll notice that we cut back on the amount of sugar and corn syrup. Thank you for your feedback!

I don't use corn syrup. Could I sub maple syrup or honey? If so, how much should I use? Would also like to eliminate the sugar if possible. It just sounds a little sweet to me!

Hi there! If you would like to cut back on the sugar in this recipe, the Test Kitchen has a few suggestions. We recommend using 1/4 c maple syrup instead of corn syrup, using 2 tbsp brown sugar instead of white sugar, and using 1/4 c apple juice. Enjoy!

I don't care for sweet potatoes, so would it be just as good with regular baking potatoes? I will try this, if it is.

Hi there! The Test Kitchen has not made this recipe substituting the sweet potatoes for regular baking potatoes. We think that it may be too sweet without the sweet potatoes added. We do have some other baked hash brown recipes that you may enjoy as well. Simply search "hash brown casserole" in the top right corner's search bar. Enjoy!
