Potato Lasagna

I am always looking ways to work on side dishes, especially potatoes and other starches. Here is one I haven't made in a while, but I am thinking of doing it for Thanksgiving. Actually since my wife has another project for Turkeyday morning, I get to do the whole dinner!

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled ·
  • 2 large Idaho baking potatoes, peeled ·
  • 2 large red skinned potatoes, skin on ·
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, in a bottle, for drizzling. or to taste ·
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped garlic ·
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese (preferably yellow) ·
  • 1 cup shredded Mozzarella ·
  • Salt and black pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Oil bottom of an 8x10-inch baking dish.
  3. Using a vegetable slicer or very sharp knife, slice sweet potatoes as thin as possible.
  4. Slice baking and red skin potatoes as you need them, to prevent browning.
  5. Cover bottom of dish with a layer of Idaho potato slices, slightly overlapping.
  6. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with garlic and cheeses and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Top with sweet potatoes, then red skin potatoes, seasoning and sprinkling each layer.
  8. Continue layers until all potatoes are used up, reserving enough cheese to fully cover top layer.
  9. Cover with foil and bake until potatoes are fork tender. Remove and let sit before cutting.
I can't remember where I got this recipe, looks like something from the Food Network for some reason. In any event I plan on building it the night before so I'll let you know how it turns out.
