Make and Take: Thanksgiving Dishes that Travel Well

It’s almost turkey time and even though you’re not hosting this year, that doesn’t mean that the pressure is off. No Thanksgiving feast would be the same without the small-but-mighty sides—we’re looking at you, pumpkin pie, green bean casserole, and fluffy mashed potatoes. These travel-friendly dishes are easy to transport, so whether Thanksgiving is across town or just across the street, you’re more than prepared for dinner to be served.

Potato Pros:

Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes
Cheese Please
Not only do these creamy, ooey-gooey scalloped potatoes have two kinds of cheese, they’re easy to make and pop in the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake. When you prep, just make sure to use a dish that’s big enough to leave about a one-inch gap from the top to avoid overflow.
Golden Sweet Potato Casserole

With pineapple and marshmallows alongside fall spices like cinnamon and pecans, this oh-so-sweet side is one of the quintessential Thanksgiving dishes—perfected. If you’re pre-cooking, leave off the marshmallows until minutes before it hits the tabletop.
Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes
