The Maine Potato: Thanksgiving Edition!

Regardless of whether you’re having traditional roast turkey for Thanksgiving or maybe something else, two items are almost certainly on your menu: mashed Maine potatoes and stuffing! Well, we've got some “new” takes for your Thanksgiving table. We've got everything from variations on your Thanksgiving favorites to potato candy and even breakfast cakes to fuel all you Black Friday shoppers!

It makes no difference if you make an indent in your mashed Maine potatoes for the gravy, if you pour it all over, or if you (gasp!) pass on the gravy; nothing says Thanksgiving better than melt-in-your-mouth creamy Maine potatoes!
