A family favorite for all kinds of celebratory meals, scalloped potatoes are simple to make.

Potato Pave

Rating: 3.5 stars 119
Pave, the French word for "paving stones," is a term chef Thomas Keller uses to describe any such rectangular or square food preparation. His potato pave is a slightly more refined version of scalloped potatoes. When he made the recipe on Martha's TV show, he showed how he slices russet potatoes into thin rectangles, tosses them in cream, and layers them in a baking pan.The pave is baked then chilled overnight and cut into individual portions and browned on the stovetop to serve. This dish makes an unforgettable holiday side dish.

Not only is this rich potato side dish a crowd pleaser, it's a winner for the cook as it can be assembled ahead of time and baked when you're ready to eat.

Potato Croquettes

It's worth setting aside some mashed potatoes just to make these potato croquettes the next day. This finger food is a crowd pleaser and makes an ideal hors d'oeuvres for entertaining or a fun side dish. All it takes is dressing up mashed potatoes with some chopped parsley before shaping the mixture into logs and then breading and frying to golden perfection.

Dauphinoise Potatoes

Rating: 3.5 stars 230
Dauphinoise potatoes, a classic French bistro dish, is an easy, creamy casserole you'll want to make for dinner parties and family meals. We use Yukon gold potatoes because they hold up well to stovetop cooking in a mixture of cream and milk. Once transferred to a casserole dish, the mixture is baked and topped with rich, nutty Gruyère—a cheese that melts wonderfully.
