1. Orange scented.
Add fragrant orange zest to quickly elevate roasted potatoes, and to complement other Thanksgiving dishes.

2. Herb-salt roasted
Toss potatoes with a quick, homemade herb salt before roasting.

3.Cheese topped
In his Greek take on roasted potatoes, MP Taverna chef and owner Michael Psilakis makes a roasted lemon sauce for tossing with potatoes, capers and herbs.

4. Mayo dressed
For a more casual-feeling Thanksgiving side, dress roasted potatoes with a mayonnaise-mustard dressing and dill.

5. Spicy and saucy
For saucy potatoes with a punch, roast par-cooked potatoes in a sweet chipotle dressing, then toss with yogurt.

6. Chile laced
If you like the kick but not the creamy sauce, try roasting potatoes with jalapeños.

7. Lemon roasted
Roast potatoes with whole lemon slices for a dish that looks as good as it tastes.
