I was thinking of just doing Olive oil salt and pepper. I ask this because my brother, wife and 3 kids are coming for Thanksgiving and the whole family is dairy free. I was also thinking of using Almond milk in place of cows milk. Thanks

maybe make roast potatoes or baked potatoes instead of mash. Or ask how they do it at home, & ask them to bring the side dish of potatoes.

Serve roasted jacket potatoes instead of mashed potatoes, or if there isn't room in the oven, boil small red skin potatoes and serve them whole.

A simple dressing of olive oil, red wine vinegar, salt, and freshly ground pepper is really delicious on a potato and that's dairy free ( and really easy to make)

I've done this. I thought it was OK. You might want to try it first and taste it before you make it as a thanksgiving side dish. Maybe consider adding some roasted garlic, chives, bacon or some other addition to give it a little more flavor.

Try garlic mashed potatoes with chicken broth, fresh garlic, dash of olive oil, salt and pepper and for extra richness you can add dairy free cream. Or dairy free sour cream, butter and milk.

They are coming from out of state and staying with my mom. I might just have them make it the way they do at home. The kids are 7, 5 and 2 and very picky so they would have to be plain and bland.

Make twice baked potatoes for the kids, I've yet to see a child that doesn't love them.

I appreciate all of the suggestions and might make some of the suggestions for my DH and I one night. My brother's kids are very picky, and eat very plain. This will be an interesting Thanksgiving because the kids don't eat Turkey. They eat some sort of gluten free, organic chicken nuggets that my brother buys. We are also scaling down on the traditional foods because my brother and his family don't eat a lot of the stuff we usually make. No biggie it's one time a year.
