This recipe uses both red skin potatoes and sweet potatoes with creamy mascarpone cheese, for a contrast of salty and sweet flavors. It is then topped with a combination of bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese.

Tried this for Christmas with Prime Rib Roast and WOW! This one goes into my recipe box for sure - it's just sweet enough and creamy and incredible - replacing plain mashed potatos forever! My husband is now a mascarpone fan forever! Thank you for this - I'm going to send to my two sisters now for them to try. - Lori, Colorado Springs, CO
