This is a mashed mixed potato casserole. It's rich and creamy. Great for your holiday dinners, but make it anytime! Don't let the goat cheese scare you off. It;s only 2 oz so it's not too strong.

A really nice change from plain mashed or plain sweet potatoes. We really love goat cheese, so next time I am going to leave out half of the cream cheese and add more goat cheese. Nice texture with the egg cooked in. Very fluffy and colorful. Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
