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!!

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

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.

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!

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!

My husband loves these, and at Christmas a few days ago, my (petite) 11 yr old niece couldn't get enough of them! I've done knock offs of this recipe when I didn't have all ingredients on hand, or didn't want to add the cheese, etc. There's just something about the combination of potatoes with the little bit of brown sugar and cream (half and half, fat free half and half, etc), that is just very satisfying.
