Because Thanksgiving is essentially about food (and football and shopping and togetherness, to a lesser degree), I thought I'd keep the discussion going about everyone's favorite meal.
Dovetailing the Best Way to Cook a Turkey thread, I began to think of the side dishes. What are everyone's favorite sides at Thanksgiving?
Here are my two:
- My wife's pumpkin pie. This is a pie passed down from her grandmother, and it is amazing. The crust is homemade, and the filling is more like a pumpkin custard than traditional pie filling. I garnish mine with cool whip at a 2:1 whipped topping/pie ratio. I'll eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, elevensies, whenever.
- Stuffing. I know everyone loves stuffing, but a grandmother makes the tastiest stuffing I've had to date. She hand-crumbles the bread and adds sausage and apples. Describing it is really no good, it just has to be consumed. I've also eaten this dish solely as a meal, topped with some brown gravy.
