Mashed potatoes are one of the most popular and versatile dishes as most people love to eat potatoes. As an added bonus to the delicious mashed potatoes, the dish can be served to almost everyone as potatoes are vegan and plant-based.
- Mac and Cheese
Mac and cheese continues to be one of the most popular side dishes and is typically not exclusive to only being served on Thanksgiving. This makes mac and cheese a perfect dish that is guaranteed to be finished by the end of the night.
