gotta have that cranberry sauce!

wrestlemaniac3's avatar

Mashed potatoes….(homer drool)

ccrash3's avatar

I love cranberry sauce too! We usually have sauerkraut as well. I think it’s a Pennsylvania thing. When I was a kid I hated it, but now, I look forward to it.

wrestlemaniac3….smooth or with lumps?

AlfredaPrufrock's avatar

Sweet potato casserole with candied pecans on top…No wait, corn pudding…no wait, Fluff (aka 5 cup salad) No wait…mashed potatoes and gravy…No wait…the perfect sandwich the next day: Sliced turkey with cranberries and mayo on white bread.

smooth…....with gravy.

Does anyone remember the leftover sandwich that Monica would make Ross after Thanksgiving on Friends? It had a layer of stuffing with gravy I think in the center. Ross called it the “moist maker”. Someone at his work ripped off the sandwich and he was pissed off. Funny episode (I’m such a nerd).

Stuffing. Lots of stuffing. And none of that vegetarian stuffing. Once a year I demand my food dripping with the juice of a dead animal!

AlfredaPrufrock's avatar

my mom always baked extra stuffing in loaves so we could have stuffing sandwiches. She and my sister loved it. White bread, yellow mustard. Our family stuffing recipe is pretty good; it’s mostly pork sausage and and homemade cornbread.

I’m toying with the idea of White Castle Stuffing. Nothing says family like a sack of sliders!

ccrash3's avatar

The stuffing is so freakin good! I make a few casserole dishes full, baste them with the drippings from the turkey and the top get nice and brown and crunchy…Ummmmmmm

cookieman's avatar

Oh man, too many yummy dishes to choose from. But if I must:
My wife’s cornbread stuffing
Butternut or Buttercup Squash
Fresh, roasted turkey (dark meat please)

Truth is, the farm I work at is sampling this stuff right now as we type. Mmmmm…I’ll be right back (runs from office)

Creamed onions! OMG! Talk about heaven! I never know whether to eat them right away when they are hot, or to wait until later, and spread out the savoring of that incredible dish.

adri027's avatar

honey baked ham, mashed potatoes with gravy and stuffing!!!! YUMMO!!!

ccrash3's avatar

I’m visualizing saliva dripping on the keyboards….

Last year I basted the turkey with a mixture of white wine, butter and herbs. The gravy came out so incredible!

AlfredaPrufrock's avatar

@Daloon, creamed onions sound really wonderful.

wrestlemaniac3's avatar

Me getting…..hungry, you won’t like me when I’m hungry.

ccrash3's avatar

Alfreda….That is hysterical! Please let us know if you try that! I don’t have a White Castle near me, but it would be interesting to know if people actually make their stuffing that way! Thanks for the link…..

ccrash3's avatar

Quick wrestle…eat!

wrestlemaniac3's avatar

Me eating(getting angrier) FOOOOOD…..done(back to normal) what happened, anything?

madsmom1030's avatar

As a transplant to the South- the stuffing they make around here, silverqueen white sweet corn, fried cornbread, squash casserole, and the dark fried turkey. But the best thing above all-dessert!! homemade chocolate cake and a pecan pie that melts in your mouth!

Comedian's avatar

my Aunt’s rolls

wrestlemaniac3's avatar

well tell her to roll on down here, I’m hungry.

PupnTaco's avatar

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, but this year I won’t be hosting. :(

I typically do two turkeys – one oven roasted with a sherry/sage butter baste, the other maple-brined and hickory smoked on the Weber.

But my favorite is my Finnish cranberry sauce – fresh cranberries, maple syrup, orange juice, orange zest, and cardamom cooked down to a thick, chunky, jellyish sauce.

wrestlemaniac3's avatar

okay let’s move on to Christmas!!

chicadelplaya's avatar

TURKEY, sweet potatoes with marshmellos baked on top, pumpkin pie, stuffing, AND mashed potatoes!!! OH, AND DON’T FORGET ABOUT ALL THAT GREAT RED WINE!!;-)

hammer43's avatar

candied yams, cauliflower with melted cheese and bread crumbs, greens, chitlins with hot sauce, sweet potato pie.

wrestlemaniac3's avatar

boston cream pie

AlfredaPrufrock's avatar

Pumpkin Mousse—this is really easy—mix a can of pumpkin pie filling (not canned pumpkin, but the pie filling with the sugar and spices and everything nices) with a small carton of cool whip. Refrigerate for an hour or so. Serve with Pepperidge Farm gingerbread cookies. Growl and snarl at anyone who insists you share.

ccrash3's avatar

I like the idea of the Pumpkin Mousse. Do you just spoon it in to little dishes after it’s refrigerated Alfreda?

AlfredaPrufrock's avatar

Yes, or you can put it into dishes and refrigerate it that way. I have little footed sherbet dishes that I use, or the old kind of champagne glasses—not the flutes, but the flat kinds.

amandaafoote's avatar

wrestlemaniac has the right idea!

tedibear's avatar

Stuffing, preferably the way my mom made it. Although my MIL does a good one, too. And crispy turkey skin – just a little bit of it. And of course, pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream… droooooolll

charliecompany34's avatar

collard greens and dressing with hot sauce. .

augustlan's avatar

I love just about everything served on Thanksgiving! If I could have only one dish it’d probably be stuffing with gravy…wait, I need to have pecan pie, too.

krose1223's avatar

Honestly, I’m not a big fan of the traditional Thanksgiving food. I have my own tradition going… (This will only be the 2nd year in the making, but I plan on keeping it going.) I have a Thanksgiving breakfast… I love breakfast food so I go crazy and make lots and lots of breakfast food. Belgian waffles with strawberries, blueberries, and whipped cream! Scrambled eggs with cheese! Bacon, sausage, and whatever else I can get! Mmmm… But I guess to answer your question I like the rolls. :) And for dessert I like all the yummy pies.

BarbieM's avatar

Dressing and the mashed potatoes with turkey gravy. And pumpkin pie. And yeast rolls. And… :)

cooksalot's avatar

Dressing of course! I also have to make the butternut squash with the garlic cream, and Parmesan cheese.

Knotmyday's avatar

Mmm, I cannot get enough Mongolian beef, chicken chow mein, rice, mu-shu pork; as long as there’s plenty of Kikkoman soy sauce and Sriracha to go around! Ah, memories…

sillymichelleyoung's avatar

I have to say, my mom’s potato salad. x]

hammer43's avatar

@sillymichelleyoung, I love good potato salad.

sillymichelleyoung's avatar

@hammer43, me too ^_^

IBERnineD's avatar

IBERnineD's avatar

Sweet potatoes with marshmallows on top.

I adore pecan pie and enjoy pumpkin pie during the holidays.

Aster's avatar

Stuffing made with cornbread, celery and onions slathered with blood I mean turkey gravy.
