We could not believe how wonderful these potatoes were!! We love love LOVE them!! I only wished I would have tried these potatoes for the thanksgiving holiday to impress my extended family...oh well there's always Christmas! I used half & half instead of heavy cream a touch more butter and mixed 1 cup cheese in with the potatoes and the remaining cheese was sprinkled on top as directed. Wonderful!! Thank you Kat!! I plan to serve these many times in the future!! Read More

This was tasty but I found the pairing of sweet potatoes with regular potatoes unappealing. Read More

Where is the 10 star rating? This was wonderfully delicious! I can't say enough good things about these potatoes! I have made them 4 times including Thanksgiving Christmas (where I impressed my picky parents! Hooray!) and twice since! These are NOT your average mashed potatoes. In fact they've now become my favorite! Kat your a genius in my book! Read More

I served this for Thanksgiving. It was fantastic! Without the cheese it's smooth and savory-sweet and creamy absolutly a dream. I kinda felt that the cheese actual detracted from it gave it a tart taste that didn't seem nearly as divine as the 'plain' potatoes were. Next time I'll be omitting that. Read More

These were very good. I didn't think there was too much pepper. I actually added even more then what the recipe called for. I will make these again for sure! Read More

Great recipe. I guess taste varies widely cause I thought the amount of pepper was perfect. I also baked the potatoes instead of boiling them. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This recipe was delicious! I thought 2 teaspoons of pepper would be a lot so I only used one. Next time I'll use only 1/2 tsp. and that will be very soon! Thanks for the great recipe Kat. Read More

YUM! I made these a few hours in advance and heated at 350 for about 45 minutes prior to serving. They were excellent! I mixed in the cheese instead of topping it. I'm not a huge fan of adding sweetness to anything that's not a desert (or egg salad) but these were great and everyone at Christmas dinner loved them! Thanks! Read More
