I OFTEN MAKE this easy potato dish when I invite someone over for lunch. It's a nice accompaniment to salads or sandwiches.
This dish always draws complimentary comments when my lunch guest arrives...the aroma of that touch of onion baking with the potatoes whets the appetite.

"THIS SWEET POTATO casserole could be a dessert—it has just the right touch of sweetness. But we serve this tasty side dish with our meal, like most people do with their own favorite sweet potato recipes. It goes so well with turkey and all the trimmings."
Fancy enough for company, these baked potatoes look like you fussed but are really simple to fix. Our home economists sliced each one into a fan, covering them with cheese, bacon and savory seasonings. (For a quick how-to on creating potato fans, turn to page 50.)
My mother often took this comforting side dish to social dinners because it was such a hit. Now I get the same compliments when I make it. Bacon and onion jazz up a creamy mixture that takes advantage of convenient frozen hash browns and canned soups. —Donna Downes

"I discovered this yummy sweet potato recipe years ago," relates Beth Buhler, Lawrence, Kansas. "There's no need for lots of butter and sugar because the pineapple and marshmallows provide plenty of sweetness. It's a holiday favorite at our house," she shares.
I'VE USED this recipe since I was married, 47 years ago.
Both my husband and I worked, and we liked to have hearty, hot meals when we came home in the evening.
This was easy and quick to make on busy days. With the amount of potatoes used, there were never any leftovers.
