Mashed potatoes are a Thanksgiving staple. Find a new way to mash and smash your spuds with our collection of 50 mashed potato mix-in recipes. There’s Blue Cheese-Walnut Mashed Potatoes, Shiitake-Squash Mashed Potatoes, Bacon-Cheddar Mashed Potatoes and 47 more.

But for Thanksgiving, when turkey is a menu must, I try to keep the mashed potatoes buttery, creamy and relatively simple, because one of the best parts of a traditional Thanksgiving feast is rich and steamy turkey gravy. Make classic mashed potatoes and gravy with these sure hit recipes from Food Network Magazine: Perfect Mashed Potatoes paired with Perfect Gravy (and see our gravy step-by-step).
