It's a family favorite for a reason.
Looking for the perfect side for your Thanksgiving dinner this year? We suggest you stick with a classic. These twice-baked potatoes are as flavorful as they are nostalgia-inducing—and with the addition of a few colorful toppings, they're pretty beautiful to boot. Here, we've rounded up all the best ideas so that you can serve up everyone's favorite down-home dish as a mouthwatering side, a no-brainer appetizer, or a main meal. Believe it or not, the twice-baked potato recipes we've selected here can even do double duty as dessert. Switch out the base for a sweet potato, and add a sweet, sugary topping (cinnamon sugar, pecans, honey cream cheese, and mini marshmallows all work beautifully), and suddenly you've got yourself a special dessert that fits perfectly with any Thanksgiving menu. Of course, you don't only have to enjoy twice-baked potatoes on Thanksgiving. They're the ultimate fall or winter side dish for just about any holiday. And get this: We've even included a loaded potato skins recipe that works for breakfast. So what are you waiting for? Browse through our favorite ideas, crank up your appetite, and get ready to make your guests really, really happy come the fourth Thursday in November.
