5. Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes – My go-to mashed potato recipe!

6. Cranberry Pecan and White Cheddar Cheese Ball – Ok, this isn’t a side dish, but it is an amazing appetizer that your guests are sure to love!

7. Cheddar and Gruyère Scalloped Potatoes Gratin – A fun alternative to mashed potatoes. These potatoes are perfectly creamy and cheesy!
