"This is an excellent recipe and especially fun to make for a holiday dinner. I prepare them ahead of time and let them sit covered in the refrigerator for a few hours before baking. They will then require a few more minutes in the oven, but it's wonderful to have these already prepared to go into the oven prior to company coming."

"Love this recipe as we can have both sweet and white potatoes in one meal, easily! The potato filling is wonderful! Had to search for this recipe online as I couldn't find it in my books, but wouldn't give up until I had it!"

"I started making these when the recipe first came out for the holidays. Everyone loves them! Now they get a taste of both kinds of potatoes. I make them of ahead of time, refrigerate, covered, let set on counter for 30 minutes and bake (it takes longer) until heated."
