Thanksgiving is — count ‘em — only 7 days away! Every day from now until then, we’re sharing our favorite Thanksgiving Side Dishes. Sweet potatoes may have been absent from the first Thanksgiving, but since then they’ve established their place on the Thanksgiving table next to green bean casserole, stuffing and/or dressing and mashed potatoes.

Traditional sweet potato casserole and honey-baked yams are great, but this year I’m adding a twist (or, rather, a kick) to the table with Bobby’s spicy scalloped potatoes. To make, just layer thinly-sliced sweet potatoes (a mandolin works wonders here) with chipotle-spiked cream and bake until tender and crisp on top. Bonus: This dish serves beautifully and travels well, so it’s ideal for a Thanksgiving potluck.
