    I've made this recipe several times and everyone loves it. It's beautiful and delicious. If you are concerned about the comment regarding meringue, ask your grocer for pasteurized eggs. I use high quality, fresh, clean organic eggs and feel comfortable with that. I cut potatoes lengthwise on the diagonal and place face down on a slightly oiled cookie sheet and bake them that way, cutting down baking time and increasing their sweetness by adding some carmelization. Can be done in advance.
