This is a farmers market creation. Golden beets are sweet and when you bake/roast them like this their sugar caramelizes a bit. It gives the best flavor to the potatoes which if you use purple fingerlings you get a potato that holds it's creaminess. Add the salt and you will find a very flavorful unique roasted side dish. Enjoy!
