What is Your Favorite Thanksgiving Food {Ask the Readers}

Ask The Readers

Today I thought I would do a fun Ask the Readers question, so we are going to talk about our favorite Thanksgiving foods.

My favorite Thanksgiving food has to be mashed potatoes. I love potatoes. I could easily do without the turkey and other sides and just pile mashed potatoes and gravy on my plate and be very happy. Well, of course I would need some dessert to go along with it, because dessert is my other favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner.

Now that I have shared my favorites, I would love to hear your favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Do you have a favorite dish or recipe? And do you have something that is a must serve each year?

  1. I love everything about Thanksgiving. The turkey, the dressing, the potatoes… but I think my favorite thing of all is giblet gravy. When you get right down to it, the potatoes and dressing are just a vehicle for getting the gravy into my mouth! And, since I use cornstarch instead of a roux to make it, it’s gluten free. Another point in it’s favor, everyone can eat it! :-)

    I could live without turkey too – just give me mashed potatoes, gravy & stuffing

  3. Anything that’s low-carb & no sugar, so I can eat it without feeling guilty!! :)

  4. My two favorites are the classic green bean casserole and pumpkin pie. It’s hard to pick, though! I love stuffing (aka dressing) as well, and also cranberry sauce. But like you, I could skip the turkey.

  5. Rolls, big fat fluffy homemade ones. Nothing store bought.

  6. My favorite is the turkey. Specifically a nice big slice of the breast. I’m asked to bring corn casserole and earthquake cake every Thanksgiving.

  7. The fried turkey skin !!!!!! :)

  8. Spinach Artichoke Casserole! If this weren’t on the menu there would be a revolt. It’s my favorite and everyone elses. I bake an extra pan and hide it so I’ll have leftovers.

    3 (10 ounce) packages frozen chopped spinach 1 can artichoke hearts
    1 can sliced water chestnuts 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
    1 stick of butter, softened 1 tablespoon worchestershire sauce
    1/2 cup Italian bread crumbs 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    Thaw and drain spinach. Drain artichoke hearts and water chestnuts. Combine butter and cream cheese. Add spinach, artichokes and water chestnuts. Stir in worcestershire sauce. Combine bread crumbs and cheese. Stir in most of the bread crumb mix, reserving 1/4 cup for topping. Press into 9×13 baking pan. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

  9. TURKEY and Dresing made my grandmama’s way!

  10. I love Artichoke and mushroom dressing!

  11. A favorite here has three names depending on how many times you go back for more: 1st trip dressing; second trip filling; third trip stuffing! And so good each time you get it. Love that “corny” Thanksgiving joke!!
