Thanksgiving is the second most wonderful time of the year as Christmas is the first but the Thanksgiving food never disappoints. Here are 15 delicious foods that you can not go without any year at Thanksgiving.

1. Deviled Eggs 

Thanksgiving is never complete without your deviled eggs or as some say "angel eggs."

2. Chicken n´ dressing 

Giphy

With a gourmet meal like this you'll come home to your house smelling like wonders.

3. Turkey

Giphy

Turkey is amazing in general but finding the wishbone and trying to get the longest side of the bone to make your wish that hands down tops it off.

4. Ham

Giphy

Smoked ham and some honey will make you go into a sleep with endless dreams it's so good.

5. Stuffing 

Stuffing is good inside of a turkey but it´s even better by its self. Yum!

6. Homemade Mac 'n' cheese 

Giphy

Don´t get me wrong, macaroni 'n' cheese from the box is good but nothing beats homemade mac 'n' cheese

7. Mashed Potatoes 

You can't beat mashed potatoes that just got off the stove top and are ready to eat.

8. Dirty Potatoes 

Dirty Potatoes are hands down the best potatoes you will EVER eat. Sadly, I only get to enjoy them on holidays :(

9. Homemade Cream Corn 

Cream corn is a essential to all your meals.

10. Homemade Peanut Butter Pie 

Giphy

Peanut butter pie that has been in the fridge and it´s waiting for you after you get done eating your meal will truly bless you.

11. Green Bean Casserole 

I'm not a fan of this dish but a lot of people are so it should be one of your dishes too.

12. Butter Rolls 

Giphy

Butter rolls are angels. You can put turkey or ham in them and eat it or you can eat them as they are, either way, your mouth will thank you.

13. Pumpkin Pie 

Giphy

Pumpkins are not just used for decoration but for flavor too.

14. Cranberry Sauce 

This is really just a side dish. Put it on your turkey or ham or eat it by itself.

15. Pecan Pie 

The flavor of the crunchy delicious pecans baked in a pie will make you want Thanksgiving to be everyday of the year.
