These Thanksgiving side dish recipes
include all the classic favorites, like my easy make ahead mashed potatoes
, the traditional green bean casserole
and everybody's favorite sweet potato marshmallow casserole
For the mashed potatoes, use Yukon Gold or russet potatoes for the best results. I like canned green beans for the green bean casserole, because they're already cooked. But if you like fresh, try my recipe for green bean casserole with fresh green beans.
