Roasted garlic brings its rich, slightly sweet flavor to these mashed potatoes. This dish can be made up to 4 hours in advance of the Thanksgiving dinner: simply cover the mashed potatoes with a thin layer of milk and store in the refrigerator. To serve, heat over simmering water, stirring to combine.
Shredded Parmesan cheese and caramelized onions glazed in balsamic vinegar make a lusciously savory topping for simple baked sweet potatoes. This sophisticated dish takes very little hands-on preparation time, since there's no need to peel the potatoes.
Mashed potatoes get creamy richness from butter, cream cheese, and sour cream, but the goodness doesn't stop there. Grated onion, chopped fresh chives, cheddar cheese, and crumbled bacon are stirred in before baking in the oven with extra cheese on top.
