This potato combo is quick to pan-fry once the stuffed French toast and sausage patties are in the oven. Boiling the potatoes the day before makes a really crisp exterior (just like at the diner).

Peel Yukon Gold and sweet potatoes, keeping types separate. Cut into 3/4-inch cubes.

In saucepan of boiling salted water, cook Yukon Gold potatoes until tenderfirm, about 6 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon to large bowl.

Cook sweet potatoes until tenderfirm, about 5 minutes. Remove with slotted spoon and add to bowl. Let cool. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours.) Toss with paprika, salt and pepper.

In large skillet, heat vegetable oil and butter over medium-high heat; fry potatoes, stirring occasionally and adding more oil if necessary, until crusty and golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve hot.
