  • 4 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (optional)

Peel potatoes. Mash white and sweet potatoes in separate mixing bowls with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Add 1 tablespoon margarine to each. Separate egg. Beat egg white and onion powder into white potatoes. Beat egg yolk and orange peel, if desired, into sweet potatoes. Season both mixtures with salt and pepper.
Line a baking sheet with foil, if desired. Lightly coat pan or foil with cooking spray. Make eight 2-1/2- to 3-inch nests on foil, using about 1/4 cup of sweet-potato mixture. Spoon white potato mixture into pastry bag fitted with decorative tip. Pipe into center of nests. Loosely cover with plastic wrap; chill for 2 to 24 hours.
To serve, melt remaining margarine; drizzle over potatoes. Bake, uncovered, in 500 degree F oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Let stand 1 to 2 minutes. Use a spatula to transfer potatoes to dinner plates. Makes 8 side-dish servings.
