    2Bleu's Note:

    This dish is very elegant. Make sure you prepare the 2 types of potatoes separately. They don't blend or 'swirl' till they're in the dutch oven.

      We really liked this combination of flavors. The onions and the bacon really make it. We used more onion and omitted the brown sugar and vanilla. Generous portions - had the leftovers for lunch topped with a little more nonfat sour cream and that was yummy too. This dish is great both for Thanksgiving and for fall.

      I made this for a nice side dish tonight, but I would rather have eaten this all for dinner! I scaled it down to serve two people and nuked the potatoes in the microwave to cook them faster and used skim milk and low fat sour cream, skipped the bacon and it just tasted fine. This is a def. a company worthy dish. The swirling of the potatoes looks so neat, not to mention the carmalized onions taste great in this dish too.

      I've never made a dish with both regular and sweet potatoes before. I loved the carmelized onion in it and could eat that by itself. The family wasn't too keen on it, but that was just our family's tastes. I think I might try it with just regular potatoes next time. Thanks, 2Bleu, for sharing your recipe!
