Amazing Roasted Mashers!

What you need: 

1 large red potato, diced 1 1/2"
1 large baking potato, diced 1 1/2"
2 large sweet potatoes, diced 1 1/2"
1 large Yukon gold potato, diced 1 1/2"
1 medium leek
1/2 small red onion, sliced 1/2" thick
salt and pepper, to taste
1-2 tablespoons olive oil

What you do: 

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Toss potatoes into a roasting pan. Add onion.
2. Trim the very tip of the root from the leek, and remove the top. (keep the white and pale green parts only). Look down the center and cut on the ellipse so it's symmetrical.
3. Swish leek in water to remove the inner dirt and debris and slice into 1/2" wide slices. Add to the roasting pan.
4. Toss all ingredients, and roast for 15 minutes, then turn down to 350 degrees F until potatoes are tender, the onions translucent, and the leeks are crispy.
Serve as is with gravy, or mash up!

I really really like yams and sweet potatoes and this was a fun way to get my family to eat them other than in a pie! They think it's weird to mix all kinds of potatoes but the first time I had them mixed was in a bag of chips (or crisps) and I thought duh make my own when I came across this recipe.  I've posted two pictures the second is with the mashers on top of a bowl of chili. They help to sort of bring the heat down from the chili with just a hint of sweetness from the sweat potato's. Thanks a lot for this recipe!

The only suggestion I have for those that try this is that you have to eat them right away before they get cold. Or turn the oven to warm or leave them in but turn the oven off, until you are ready to eat them.
