I made this creamy and comforting potato dish for Thanksgiving and it was a winner with my family. They said to be sure to include it at every holiday dinner. It's a keeper! —Joan McCulloch, Abbotsford, British Columbia

"We're a mashed potatoe loving family, of both white and sweet potatoes, and we liked this dish pretty well, but we agreed that we'd prefer not to have the sweet potatoes mixed in with the other potatoes. The addition of the chive and onion cream cheese to the russets was very tasty.....I made it with reduced fat cream cheese.....and the cheddar and MonterreyJjack cheese was a good addition to the top, along with green onions and parmesan. The whipped sweet potatoes were delicious too, but we prefer them with just butter added to them. Two great tastes....but we like them best not layered together. Still, none of the dish went begging!"

"This sounds wonderful. You can probably lighten it up by using reduced fat cheeses, lite sour cream, light spreadable chive & onion cream cheese and skim milk."
