Potato lovers will 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.

"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!
