While the orange spuds get plenty of attention all year long, they come into their crowning glory on Thanksgiving.

Here are 15 tasty ways to serve up sweet potatoes at your Thanksgiving feast.

Casseroles Starring Sweet Potatoes

It's hard to think about Thanksgiving sides without a classic marshmallow-topped sweet potato casserole coming to mind. For a more savory twist, slice these sweet spuds into rounds for a layered gratin or a dish of creamy scalloped potatoes.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

For anyone whose heart skips a beat for mashed potatoes, you should know that a creamy, lush sweet potato mash is always a good addition to any Thanksgiving side dish line up.

Baked and Roasted Sweet Potatoes

You might know baked and roasted sweet potatoes as your standby weeknight sides, and this irresistible line up comes with big flavors that make them impressive enough for any Thanksgiving spread.

Sweet Potato Desserts

These naturally sweet root vegetables make them a no-brainer for the dessert table. Baked into a pie sweet potatoes are lighter yet creamier than their pumpkin cousin, and paired with a heavy dose of vanilla and subtle spices. Or use them as you would apples for a tart tatin.
