Says Julia Daubresse of Sun City Center, Florida: “I received this recipe from my sister some 60 years ago and so many people have requested it since then! The potatoes are rich, creamy and taste like twice-baked. It offers make-ahead convenience, so it’s great for potlucks.”
I dressed up a package of stuffing mix with pork sausage, mushrooms, celery and onion to make this stuffing. It impressed my in-laws at a family gathering and has since become a popular side dish with my husband and children. —Jennifer Lynn Cullen, Taylor, Michigan
I combined two of my favorite vegetables in this creamy gratin to create a family-friendly dish that fits right into your busy schedule. Topped with crunchy Panko bread crumbs and savory Italian cheeses, you'll have this comforting side on the table in under an hour. —Mrs. Priscilla Gilbert, Indian Harbour Beach, Florida
“This sweet and colorful fruit compote is perfect with an egg casserole at a holiday brunch. It can bake right alongside the eggs, so everything is conveniently done at the same time,” notes Joyce Moynihan in Lakeville, Minnesota.
This colorful casserole is the perfect side dish for Thanksgiving, with its combination of sweet potatoes, cranberries and apples. I find it convenient to cook the sweet potatoes in the morning and assemble the dish, then bake it later.
It looks so elegant that everyone thinks I really fussed when I serve this roast. But it's actually so easy! The biggest challenge is to remember to order the crown roast from the meat department ahead of time. My family loves the succulent pork and savory bread stuffing.

My husband and father go crazy for this dressing. Although leftovers are rare, it freezes quite well. To save time, chop the veggies and prepare the stuffing mix ahead of time.—Bette Votral, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
