Yukon Gold and Sweet Potatoes Anna

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2013


  • 1 1/4 pounds Yukon Gold potatoes (3 to 4 medium), peeled
  • 1 1/4 pounds sweet potatoes (2 medium), peeled
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut Yukon Gold and sweet potatoes into 1/8-inch-thick slices with a handheld slicer or sharp knife, keeping potato varieties separate.

  2. Brush an ovenproof 10-inch nonstick skillet with butter. Starting in center of pan, arrange about 20 Yukon Gold slices, slightly overlapping, in a circular pattern, covering surface. Brush with butter and generously season with salt and pepper. Make another layer with sweet-potato slices; brush with butter and season. Repeat, alternating Yukon Gold and sweet-potato slices. Drizzle any remaining butter on top of potatoes.

  3. Place skillet over medium-high heat and cook until butter vigorously bubbles in pan, about 4 minutes. Transfer to oven and bake 30 minutes. Tent loosely with foil and continue to bake until potatoes are easily pierced with a knife, about 20 minutes more. Remove from oven. Run a small rubber spatula around edges of potatoes to loosen. Carefully invert onto a plate and cut into wedges.

Cook's Note

The Japanese Benriner mandoline slicer ( makes quick work of cutting potatoes and other vegetables into thin, even slices. It’s less intimidating and easier to clean and store than a traditional metal mandoline.

    I made this for Christmas dinner, and it was a huge hit! I was a little nervous about the sweet potatoes, since I'm normally not a big fan, but they added a great texture and flavor. I followed the recipe exactly, and keeping your potato slices an even width is key to cooking evenly. Turned out of the pan with just a few slices "stuck," but they were easily removed and re-placed on the top of the dish. Definitely will make this again, and want to try the "Roots Anna" next!
