I had to change it a bit for my taste. The recipe stated to use the skins so that was my first change. I must have overbaked the potatoes because I could not use the skins so I put it in a casserole. Using a blender would have made it too smooth for my taste, I saved a couple of dishes and a few minutes time by just mashing the potatoes by hand. I despise sage so I did not use it. Based on the other reviews, and after having made it without sage, I'm sure that amount of sage would overwhelm the potatoes. I also left out the ginger and brown sugar as I wanted this to be quite different than the typical sweet, almost dessert-like sweet potato casseroles. The slightly caramelized shallots and cheeses added a great flavor on their own. With just those ingredients plus salt and pepper, I thought it was 5+ stars!! I can't wait to take this dish to share at a get-together.
