How to Make Checkerboard Potatoes
- cut and peel potatoes and sweets. In 2 seperate pots boil them. When they come to a boil reserve 1 cup of water from each pot. Let the potatoes soften up as much as they can so it would be easy to mash. With a hand mixer mix the whites and sweets. Please remember to keep them in the seperate pots still. Add the cream cheese and then the reserved water. After byou have finished mixing the potatoes enough transfer them into a square or rectangle caserole dish in a checkerboard pattern. The pattern will be one scoop potatoes one scoop sweets. When you are finished arranging the potatoes you will then put them in the oven for 40 minutes on 350. This is a great dish for a big family gathering. Enjoy!!
