Whether you like your potatoes mashed until fluffy and creamy or layered with melted cheese and cream, no Thanksgiving spread is complete without them. Here are some our top picks for the feast.
|Herbed Potato Gratin|
Thinly sliced potatoes soak up heavy cream perfumed with garlic and fresh herbs in this decadent gratin, a luxurious accompaniment to a Thanksgiving turkey or any sort of roasted meat.
|Crispy Smashed Potatoes|
These potatoes are cooked in two steps to make them tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. First, they’re simmered in salted water, then smashed and fried in a griddle pan until browned.
|Individual Herbed Potato Gratins with Gruyère|
Because they’re sized for single servings, these gratins make a beautiful presentation for a special occasion dinner. With layers of cream, melted cheese and fresh chives, they are rich and comforting for fall.
|Braised Potatoes & Escarole|
A slow cooker makes pleasantly bitter escarole and hearty potatoes meltingly tender. After cooking, they are drizzled with a zesty vinaigrette and diced orange, which sharpen their flavors.
Deluxe Mashed Potatoes
Hints of rosemary and thyme and a touch of garlic and chile make these potatoes a favorite of the Williams-Sonoma Test Kitchen. Using a potato ricer ensures fluffy, lump-free potatoes every time.
|Smashed Fingerlings with Fromage Blanc|
Fromage blanc is a creamy, slightly tangy fresh cheese that can be swirled into soups, drizzled with honey or mixed with vegetables, like these tender fingerling potatoes. They are boiled and smashed, then mixed with the cheese and fresh chives.

Celery root has a pronounced nutty, earthy taste that complements the potatoes in this rich, creamy gratin. It’s been a hit on our customers’ Thanksgiving tables!
