Every Thanksgiving, we all gather around to eat food that we don't eat at any other time of the year. There is a definitive ranking to which of these foods is best, and here it is.
My favorite is cherry, but pumpkin pie is king. If you can get away with eating dessert first, i would highly recommend.
2. Crescent Rolls
My family only has crescent rolls at Thanksgiving, so these are a real treat. So flaky!
3. Mashed Potatoes
Pour the gravy on!! Mashed potatoes taste so much better at Thanksgiving.
4. Green Bean Casserole
The only time eating vegetables is fun is when you're eating them in a casserole.
The main dish. It's good, especially if done well (I've been lucky to have eaten good turkey over my years), but it's not a showstopper. The sides are really the interesting part of Thanksgiving.
6. Cranberry Sauce
You either hate it or love it. I've always been indifferent, so I put it toward the bottom.
The only thing it's good for is sopping up extra gravy, unless it's really, really good with lots of meat. Otherwise, it's just a plate filler.
This is only on the list because someone in your family required that a REAL vegetable be present.
9. Sweet potatoes
Upon asking around, this was found to be the least favorite Thanksgiving food. Who knew sweet potatoes were so hated?
To summarize, no one's complaining about Thanksgiving food. A day dedicated to giving thanks and eating with family and friends? Count me in!!
