"Alternating slices of sweet and white potatoes baked in cream, butter, and a touch of cinnamon are a wonderful taste surprise. This dish was served by friends after my aunt's funeral. I've made it for several special occasions and it never fails to be a hit. It is rich, but oh so delicious."

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a 9x13 inch baking dish, alternate the sweet potato and red potato slices in overlapping rows to create a checkerboard effect. Pour the cream evenly over the potatoes. Dot with pieces of butter, and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  3. Bake uncovered for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the potatoes are fork tender, and slightly brown around the edges. Remove from the oven and let stand for 15 minutes before serving.

I have one suggestion for these potatoes.... don't make them. A waste of time and money. The taste of cinnamon with these potatoes is gross. These don't even rate one star, but there is no lower choice. SORRY!!!!

5/2/03 Would not make this dish again. It was edible, however, teenage girls would not go near it. Not even a "pretty" dish. Sorry, Nannie
