Thanksgiving is just around the corner. We all know that the turkey is the star attraction… but what about the side dishes? If you are like me you want traditional and non traditional dishes. I want my feast flavorful! ( that’s the chef in me). When choosing side dishes I often times will choose simplicity. That is why I love this savory dish of hearty potatoes with a hint of sweetness. It’s a simple dish that packs lot of flavor and it’s easy to make.
