Round out the Thanksgiving menu with mashed and sweet potatoes galore, comforting classics, and surprisingly cheesy gratins. Perfect mashed potatoes are revered for being silky, starchy, and creamy. Our two-potato method achieves all three textures. You also can't go wrong with stacked, swirled, baked, or gratinéed spuds. Sweet, mashed, roasted, or truffled: We've got just the potato dish your family is craving. For every potato casserole, include a platter of Thanksgiving vegetable sides. Then, you'll have a truly beautiful table.
Truffled Pommes Anna
Cooks doing something more elegant (say, with the turkey roulade) can put out white truffle-scented pommes Anna and sit back for the oohs and aahs. A small amount of truffle oil infuses the whole dish with loads of earthy essence. If you don't have truffle oil, you can use olive oil for a more subtle flavor.
