Now that it’s November everyone is getting ready to host Thanksgiving. I stopped by the Katie Show today to offer some tips on the best mashed potatoes. Here’s a favorite recipe of mine–the apple and horseradish offer a little bit of tartness and spice, but still keeping in the traditional flavor profile. Feel free to add in any kind of root vegetable to the mix though; don’t be shy to remix the old favorites.

Also, be sure not to over mix it! The more you mix it the more likely your potatoes will get that glue-like texture that no amount of gravy can mask. After that, here are two other sides that are real holiday crowd pleasers and go with just about any kind of turkey.

Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Sour Cherries and Pecans

Berbere Roasted Carrots and Fennel with Orange Slices
