Thanksgiving is all about being thankful for what you have and then having a big meal. Between having turkey and different side dishes, things could go wrong.  Some recipes are not always good, so here are some delicious ideas.

Potato Casserole:

This method for potatoes casserole is tasty and all you need are 6 large baking potatoes, milk, mayonnaise, sour cream, butter, salt, pepper, garlic, and shredded cheese.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel the potatoes and cut them into 1-inch cubes. Place the potatoes and salt in a pressure cooker with water to cover and boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the potatoes until cooked, about 5 minutes. (If you do not have a pressure cooker, boil the potatoes in a pot of water with a pinch of salt until tender, about 20 minutes.) Add the milk, mayonnaise, sour cream, butter, garlic salt, pepper and cheese to a stand mixer. Whip the mixture until thoroughly combined. Drain the potatoes and add to the mixer. Place in a pan and cook then you are good to go. Food network
