Family Thanksgiving Menu Ideas From the Real Simple Editors
If the Real Simple food department hosted Thanksgiving, this is what it would look like: a crowd-pleasing potluck featuring favorite family recipes (dog-eared, make-ahead, easy as pie).
Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes
“My husband is a purist when it comes to food. Despite my career, he’s not remotely into ‘interesting’ or ‘surprising’ dishes,
especially at Thanksgiving. A couple of years ago, in a state of culinary rebellion, I mixed some sour cream into the mashed
potatoes. Miraculously, they weren’t pushed aside on his plate or criticized. Celebrate the small victories, right?” —Allie Lewis Clapp, food director
