This is a very hearty vegetarian dish. I often use half and half potato and sweet potato or just sweet potato for the mash and either work very well too.

This was delicious. Thank you for such a tasty meal. The timing was off for me. It took at least 2 hours, start to finish. I took it out of the oven before the potatoes got to the golden stage because we needed to eat, as we had somewhere we had to go. Perhaps, if I had put steps 4 and 5 before steps 2 and 3 it would not have taken the 2 hours. Still, it was quite tasty, and the house smelled wonderful! Thanks again for such a fine recipe. Made for Spring 2007 PAC.
