Mashed Potato Layer Bake


3 1/4 pounds baking potatoes (about 9), peeled, chopped and cooked

1/2 pound sweet potatoes (about 1 large), peeled, chopped and cooked

8 ounces chive & onion cream cheese spread

1/2 cup sour cream

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Place potatoes in separate bowls. Add half each of the cream cheese spread, sour cream and pepper to each bowl; mash until potatoes are creamy.

Stir half the Parmesan into white potatoes, then stir half the Cheddar into sweet potatoes.

Layer half each of the potatoes in a 2-quart clear casserole (so guests can admire the layers). Repeat layers.

Bake 15 minutes. Top with remaining cheeses; bake 5 minutes more, or until melted.

Servings: 14 servings, 1/2 cup each.
