  • 1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes about 3
  • 1 lb sweet potatoes about 2
  • kosher salt
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter diced
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream warmed
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp light brown sugar packed
  • pinch cayenne pepper


  • Put the potatoes and sweet potatoes in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Add a generous pinch of salt, bring to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are easily pierced with a knife, 35 to 40 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly. Peel the Yukon gold potatoes and transfer to a medium bowl. Peel the sweet potatoes and transfer to a separate bowl.
  • Divide the butter between the 2 bowls. Add the heavy cream and sour cream to the Yukon gold potatoes and mash well with a potato masher; season with salt and black pepper. Add the brown sugar and cayenne to the bowl with the sweet potatoes and mash well; season with salt and black pepper.
  • Dollop the potatoes and sweet potatoes into a warmed serving dish and swirl using a large spoon. (The potatoes can be made up to 2 hours ahead; set aside in a baking dish. Reheat, covered, at 350°F, 15 to 20 minutes.)
