Potato lovers go crazy for this delicious bake from my mother-in-law. The creamy combination of Yukon Golds and sweet potatoes goes well with poultry or roasts. This recipe tastes great reheated, although leftovers are rare. —Mary Ann Dell, Phoenixville, Pennsylvania

"Years ago a neighbor passed on a recipe, that in some ways, is similiar to this.  It's potatoes & carrots cooked in water & a dry onion soup packet.  Then they're mashed w/ sour cream & topped with shredded cheddar cheese.  It's become a family favorite & none of us are crazy about cooked carrots!

I copied this recipe for future use!
