"Don't expect life to serve you what you expect. Just enjoy the buffet." -Manoj Vaz

The refrigerator light goes on...

This recipe is taken from one of my favorite hotel breakfast buffets. The combination of the different color potatoes along with the sweet potatoes, the shallots and black pepper are perfect when roasted together. The slight spice from a bit of cayenne is optional but it brings a lot to the dish.

You can serve this with breakfast or it makes a great side dish for roasted chicken or fish.
