Potato Latkes from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @HamiltonBeach

Personally, I prefer my latkes topped with sea salt, sour cream, chives and a little squeeze of lemon, but you might like them topped with something sweet. Applesauce is very popular, but I bet they’d be good topped with Apple-Pumpkin Butter, Apple Ginger Compote with Toasted Walnuts or even this Lime Cilantro Avocado Sauce. You could also try cottage cheese, creme fraiche, caviar, scallions, pesto, lox, malt vinegar or hot sauce. The possibilities are endless. You could even create a latkes bar and let everyone make their own.

We sliced the potato strips perfectly thin in our Stack & Snap™ 10 Cup Food Processor (70720). Use a russet potato for a nice, firm texture in your potato strands. You could make these with a healthful twist by adding sweet potatoes or zucchini in with the potatoes.

There are many ways to enjoy this delicious potato dish. What’s your favorite way to eat latkes? Tell us in the comments.

Thanksgiving Mashed Potatoes - Everyday Good Thinking - @hamiltonbeach

My mom and I always look forward to mashed potatoes at Thanksgiving. Did you know they can be made easily in your slow cooker while you’re taking care of the green bean casserole and basting the turkey?

Sweet potatoes with cranberries are a welcome update to the marshmallow-topped casseroles of yesteryear. These can also be made in the slow cooker, and it couldn’t be easier. This might just become your signature dish for years to come.
