Thanksgiving Potatoes 3 Ways

Potatoes are often thought of as a comfort food, and for good reason. Creamy mashed potatoes, dressed up baked potatoes, the list of warm and delicious recipes goes on. As long as you’re not consuming this crop in the form of greasy store-bought potato chips and french fries, they’re an excellent ingredient to include in your daily diet.

Surprisingly, there are great health benefits to potatoes when eaten in moderation with the right recipes. They’re high in vitamin B6 (remember, the vitamin that initiates sleepiness?), potassium (which helps maintain blood pressure) and vitamin c.  Potatoes make for a great side dish, especially for Thanksgiving.  Watch the video above for my favorite potato recipes: mashed, roasted and/or crispy smashedBaked is pretty good, too.
