15 Delicious Ways to Cook Potatoes for Thanksgiving

au gratin potatoes

What’s Thanksgiving without potatoes? We like to eat them twice-baked, mashed and scalloped when the whole family gathers for the holiday. Of course, there are several variations of those kind of recipes. I scrolled through The Family Kitchen to find some of our absolute best potato recipes. These are for sweet potatoes, yukon gold, fingerlings — the whole nine yards. If we haven’t included a favorite preparation of yours, please let us know!
