Baked Double Taters

  • 2-3 medium red potatoes, peeled and sliced into chunks
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and sliced into chunks
  • 1 T. salt
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tsp. sweet paprika
  • 2-3 T. plain yogurt
  • 1/4 c. fried shallots (or onions)

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Lightly spray a casserole dish with cooking spray and set aside.

Place the red and sweet potato chunks in a medium saucepan and fill it with enough water to cover the poatoes. Add the salt and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat slightly and simmer the potatoes until they are fork tender, about 20 minutes.

When the potatoes are done, drain away the water and add the garlic, paprika, and yogurt to the pot. Using either an electric hand mixer or a potato masher, mash the potatoes until they are well-incorporated and only a few chunks remain. Spoon the mashed potatoes into the prepared casserole dish. Sprinkle the top of the dish with the fried shallots and bake the potatoes for 15-20 minutes or until the top of the mixture is lightly golden.
