We clipped out this recipe and I want to post it for safe-keeping. I believe it is originally from www.turkeyrecipes.ca, and the description is as follows: "Here is a comforting nutritious dish to put together for a cold, windy fall or winter night".

We really enjoyed this. I made half sweet potato topping and the other half regular mashed potato because some of my family does not like sweet potatoes. Both toppings were great! Easy to put together. Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
