Just like Thanksgiving, I like to make something that is a staple of everyone, yet as a unique (and delicious) twist. And since everyone loves potatoes, that is my go-to dish for this holiday season.

And besides their amazing taste, potatoes are also good for you. Did you know that one medium potato, with the skin, provides about 45 percent of the daily value of vitamin C?
