1 pound Idaho potatoes, cut into thin wedges
1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled cut into wedges
EVOO Extra Virgin Olive Oil, for liberal drizzling
Salt and pepper
Freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
1 pound sauerkraut
1/2 cup ketchup
3/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup pickle relish
1 1/2 pounds 1/4-inch thick sliced corned beef, chopped
About 2 cups, 12 ounces, shredded Emmentaler cheese or Gruyre cheese
Chopped celery tops or parsley for garnish

Preheat oven to 400F.

Preheat a large, cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.

In a large bowl, combine potatoes with a liberal drizzle of EVOO, enough to coat potatoes. Season with salt, pepper, a little nutmeg and caraway seeds. Add to hot pan, toss around and situate in fairly even layer. Transfer to oven and roast about 20-25 minutes.

Rinse and drain sauerkraut.

Combine ketchup, sour cream and relish in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Remove skillet from oven and top the potatoes with sauerkraut, sauce, chopped corned beef and cheese. Return skillet to oven and bake 10-12 minutes more until cheese is bubbly. Serve from hot skillet.
