Everyone at your holiday dinner will dive right into a plate of cheesy bacon ranch potatoes, brown sugar glazed red potatoes, or broccoli and Cheddar twice-baked potatoes, plus there are many different versions of potatoes on this list, including potato salads, scalloped potatoes, and mashed potatoes. Even the little ones will be piling their plates high. And don't forget the sweet potatoes! We're keeping all the sweet potato recipes right here.Hopefully you've got some help in the kitchen, but even if you're the one doing all the cooking this year, we're doing our best to help by keeping these recipes super simple to make. Some dishes can be made in your Instant Pot and others are prepared in your slow cooker, so you can let your trusty kitchen device handle the hard work. (Come on, it doesn't get easer than that!)
