    Love the flavor mixture and the family enjoyed the potatoes. Mine was a bit dry when mashing and so I added some milk. Will definitely make again!

    Very tasty dish, we loved the combination of sweet & white pototoe. The only problem I had with this recipe was deciding how many/much potatoes to use being that a large potatoe can vary greatly. Based on weight, for 4-5 servings, I used about 1 lb of white & 1/2 lb of sweet and adjusted the other ingredients accordingly. I didn't have sour cream so I used yogurt instead which we are used to anyhow. My cream cheese was regular style & it worked ok too. There was plently of flavour & easy to make, thanks for sharing.


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
