One of the great things about these creamy potatoes is they turn out even better if you make them a couple days ahead and bake them on the day you serve them till they're golden brown on top. —Krista Smith Kliebensteain, Broomfield, Colorado
In October, my husband helps harvest cranberries at a friend's bogs, so I have access to the very freshest ingredients. Their bold autumn flavor pairs up perfectly with sweet potatoes to make a seasonal side dish my family looks forward to.
I LIKE this potato recipe because it’s a make-ahead dish and when the company rings the bell, it can be placed in the oven. Of Swedish origin, it was first served to my husband and me when we visited our daughter in Michigan and this was part of her Easter meal. She had received it from a friend.
The first time I tasted this casserole was at a church supper, and I immediately asked around to find out who made it. I asked the cook to share her recipe, and it has become one of my family's most-requested dishes.

I love eggnog so I am always looking for new ways to use it. When I added it to mashed sweet potatoes I knew I had a winner. You can make this the night before and refrigerate it unbaked; the next day, let it stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.—Katie Wollgast, Florissant, Missouri
My cousin gave me this simple savory recipe. Whenever I'm making homemade mashed potatoes, I throw in a few extra spuds so I can make this dish for supper the next night. —Tanya Abernathy, Yacolt, Washington
